The number of children being prescribed antidepressants is at an all time high. The so-called pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns have seen a 40 per cent increase in drugs being prescribed for under-17’s.
Repeated lockdowns, isolation, school closure and fear of spreading the virus has left many children suffering “locked-in trauma.” According to The Telegraph this morning:
More than 27,000 children were prescribed antidepressants last year, the figures show, with numbers peaking during the first lockdown, and two thirds of cases involving girls.
Experts said growing numbers of children were being medicated, because waiting lists for help from psychologists and psychiatrists were too long.
Psychologists claim that children have become anxious about normal activities and that social distancing and fear of infection is leading to behavioural problems.
Earlier this week the BBC reported that children as young as 5 were having panic attacks about playdates and expressing fears about leaving their homes.
Waiting lists for counselling and psychotherapy are so long, that doctors are putting children on antipsychotic drugs. I cannot find the words to express how awful this is. Look what they’ve done to our children.
Will there ever be a day of reckoning for Johnson, Hancock, Vallance, Whitty and Van Tam? The buck stops with them. They have destroyed the lives and the futures of millions of children. They did it willingly. They did it knowingly.
Auschwitz would be too good for them.
