I understand that drug companies need to advertise. What I don't think we should see are advertisements promoting psychiatric drugs, ones that are created to address false diagnosis'. Where are the valid tests that show chemical imbalances? I've personally seen some psychiatric tests and they are simply a survey. It's scary that people, especially children, are then placed on medications that can cause awful side-effects, requiring further medications. Isn't this an obvious scam?! Please don't allow the FALSE ADVERTISING to continue. It's "freedom of speech", not "freedom to broadly lie", especially if it puts our mental health at stake. Trista Marquez Milton, MA
