Brain Police Target Youth

TeenScreen: A Front Group for the Psycho-Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex

Bush's Texas Two-Step: TeenScreen and TMAP

Bush, Columbia University & "TeenScreen®" Program
The "Teen Screen Program" is a Mental Illness Screening Program put out by Columbia University, the same group that has been designated by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to review the studies on SSRI-antidepressants inducing self-harm & suicide in children... Conflict of Interests!

SAMHSA Announces Funding Opportunities

Nearly one out of every five students who took the Youth Risk Behavior Survey last year admitted they had tried at least once to kill themselves.

Those students were just 14 and 15 years old, freshmen and sophomores in Manatee high schools, said Karen Stewart, chairwoman of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Task Force.

Apparently the "Bush plans to screen whole US population for mental illness" headlines were troubling so now we have the GARRETT LEE SMITH MEMORIAL ACT focusing on teen suicide prevention which sounds much nicer on the surface and will ease the population into the idea of accepting screening.
