My Co-host is Sue Parry, retired Occupational Therapist and Mother of three grown sons who were all diagnosed "at-risk" for ADHD, Conduct Disorder and various learning disabilities when they were of school age. Her personal experiences with the mental health system left her outraged at how health care and educational professionals allowed her children and millions of others to be physically and psychologically hurt by the myths of ADHD and a host of other so-callled mental illnesses , the increasing use of powerful brain diasbling drugs and bogus therapies. Sue Parry's name appears in the acknowledgments of many books including "Talking Back To Ritalin," Naughty Boys: Anti-social Behavior, ADHD and the Role of Culture, and "A Disease Called Childhood: Why ADHD Is an Epidemic." She has testified at the National Institute of Mental Health and the FDA. We will discuss what must be done to protect our children and our democracy from this authoritarian and unscientific onslaught to the life and education of our future citizens.
