I know I’ve posted this link to the Guardian article before, but it is quite mind-blowing. Data from a Freedom of Information request shows that a staggering 1 in 6 people in England were prescribed antidepressants in 2017. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/aug/10/four-million-people-in-england-are-long-term-users-of-antidepressants The College of GPs and the RCPsych of course try to say how good it is that depression is being diagnosed and treated. One sixth of the population have clinical depression that requires chemical correction? Bonkers. Its not as if the drugs actually work anyway, but thats another story.
