Event Details

Are common US prescription medications linked to violence?

On Friday January 18, 2013 from 2 to 3pm at the Still Mind Zendo* center in New York City, RxISK.org will be hosting a free public discussion about links between school shootings, other violent acts, and common prescription medications with Dr. David Healy, MD, a world-renowned psychiatrist and psychopharmacologist from the United Kingdom.  What role have doctors played and should doctors be held responsible?

Dr. Healy has acted as an expert witness for the plaintiff in several high profile trials in the United States and elsewhere where violent acts and prescription drugs were successfully linked. He has authored more than 150 peer-reviewed articles, 200 other pieces, and 20 books, including Pharmageddon from University of California Press, The Antidepressant Era and The Creation of Psychopharmacology from Harvard University Press, The Psychopharmacologists Volumes 1-3 and Let Them Eat Prozac from New York University Press, and Mania from Johns Hopkins University Press.

“With over 90% of school shooters on antidepressants, we need to have a serious discussion about the role that prescription drugs might have played in the recent Connecticut massacre and other mass killings”, says Dr. Healy, CEO of RxISK.org.

After a brief presentation by Dr. Healy, journalists and the public will have an opportunity to ask questions.
