Lots of people are depressed they don't go killing people I think that promotesan unhealthy stigma about mental health.

Something else was going on with this guy and then maybe dpression on top or as a by product.

I agree... I have suffered from depression for years and have also been diagnosed with a few personality disorders crazy BUT I noticed the problems and got help and now, after many years of different medications and therapy, I know that the issues are (literally) in my brain and I cannot help it.
It's not `our` fault... as long as you seek help and realise that somethings wrong we can finally get rid of the stigma with mental health (having any mental health issues and not getting help, no matter how small is like trying to walk on a broken leg without a cast forever!)

Thank goodness the gun issue isn't a HUGE thing here in the UK, No... the scummy people much prefer knives here mad... we've had a massive spate of killings in gangs in London recently... Things won't change until we educate our children and get tougher on the people that commit these crimes.. then perhaps we can all live together in some kind of peace grin

Unfortunately not all peoples bodies react to depression medication the same! frown I was on prozac for several years and for the first few life was great, but the last few months I was on it, really bizarre thoughts started popping into my head... things I would NEVER consider doing but all the same it was there and I also began having hallucinations. When I spoke with my doctor we decided to increase the dose (after all I had been on the medication for over 5 years) and things got worse so I weaned myself off and presto... no more insane thoughts! Maybe he was one of the people who react poorly to the medication?? Unfortunately, there is never a medication that is 100% great for every single person! I sooo agree with you Fabutam- without help, mental health IS like trying to walk and function with a broken leg.. it just doesn't work! Maybe the answer isn't neccesarily medication but therapy?? Or a combination of the two!! There are LOTS of doctors who are soo swamped with patients that they just throw medication at problems! There IS that stigma that goes with mental health and it is sad because people are suffering because of it! Alot of the time they won't seek help or don't seek all the help that is available because they fear of judgement!

I feel soo bad for all the families having to go through this! I watched a special on Nightline last night and it literally broke my heart to see so many people so devastated! frown For any of you that were affected, I am so sorry for all the losses you have suffered! My prayers are with you! frown

theoretically it is both. You go one meds so that you can ebtter comprehend the therapy and as the therapy starts to work you come off the meds (I'm a psych major)
This guy was offered help, he didn't want it. He was even hospitalized for a bit, unfortunately people in this country can't be involuntarily commited until after they've committed a crime...

I'm just glad I stayed home that day. I'm a commuter, I live an hour outside of town. I finally went into Blacksburg today...the media...jeeze.

I didn't directly know anyone. Stephanie, I am so sorry *hugs* Didn't know you were so geographically close to meh and the scene. Hard to believe the Today show has been hosted right where I walk to class every frackin' day.
