This is a very complex and controversial subject and you should in no way make a decision about starting or stopping any sort of medication without doing your own homework and deep research, as well as consulting with your doctor. It is your life, your body, your brain, and your responsibility. The following information is here to let you know that things are not always what they seem...no matter who is telling you otherwise. www.depression180.com

We live in a world that is obsessed by happiness…so much so that we sell billions of dollars worth of side-effect laden medications each year, in order to try to help people overcome sadness. And even though these medications—called antidepressants—haven’t exactly been shown to be overly helpful and are highly addictive to the people who use them – we are somehow still willing to take them in hopes of feeling a little better about the world around us. The real question is, what is happiness anyway and how do we go about finding it? Are you someone who is for the most part happy or unhappy? Why are some people happier than others, and how can we overcome the hundreds of negative thoughts that run through our heads each and every day? Find out how to double your happiness in minutes on this show!

BIO: Stan White
Stan White is a retired high school principal. He is the father of Marine Corporal Andrew White, who was a healthy 23-year-old, gung-ho Marine returning from a nine-month tour in Iraq, who, like so many of his brothers in arms, suffered from the seemingly normal stresses of war—insomnia, nightmares and restlessness. The young corporal turned to the military’s mental health system for help. Within a few short months, White became unrecognizable to his family. Eleven months after beginning his first cocktail of mind-altering drugs, he died in his sleep from what the medical examiner ruled an “accidental overdose of medication.” Since taking his first multi-drug cocktail to the date of his death, White had been prescribed no less than nineteen different drugs with many at ever-increasing dosages, including antidepressants, antipsychotics, anti-anxiety, pain killers and antibiotics. The prescribed drugs Methadone, Oxycodone, Paxil and Seroquel were found in his system at the time of death. Stan and his wife, Shirley, blame the “lethal cocktail” of psychiatric drugs for the death of their son. “We don’t think they should be given to troops in the field,” Stan White said. “It’s worth asking whether they should be given to anybody anytime, civilian or military.” The Whites are advocating more alternatives for soldiers and have testified before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The problem: Challenge in engaging and retaining patients in anti-depressant treatment
--over 50% of patients do not take anti-depressants as prescribed --30% of patients discontinue treatment after one month
--Anti-depressants can help people overcome their depression, not completing treatment leaves them at risk of the depression returning and over the long term, having multiple episodes of depression.
Our approach to the problem: Training psychiatrists in Motivational Interviewing in order to improve how they engage patients in treatment and help build and sustain their motivation to get better. But a key challenge was to keep session length consistent with the usual 15-20 minutes.

in Self Help
For years Andy hid his raging mania under a larger-than-life personality. He sought a high wherever he could find one, and changed jobs as some people change outfits -- filmmaker, art dealer, hustler; whatever made him feel like a cartoon character, invincible and bright. Electroboy is about living life at breakneck speed. Andy hopped on flights from New York to Tokyo and Paris at a moment's notice, spent $25,000 without a bit of thought on a huge shopping spree and stayed awake nights exploring the underworld of nightlife in Manhattan or whatever city he happened to be visiting, in search of the perfect high. But when Andy turned to art forgery, he found himself the subject of a scandal lapped up by the New York media, then in jail, then under house arrest. And for once he didn't have a ready escape hatch from his unraveling life. Andy was misdiagnosed by more than eight doctors and even when he was finally diagnosed with this chronic illness, he was treated unsuccessfully with any regimen of medication. Ingesting handfuls of antidepressants and tranquilizers, he felt his mind lose traction. With no hope of his condition stabilizing, he turned to the last resort: electroshock therapy also known as electroconvulsive therapy (or ECT). Andy underwent nineteen electroshock treatments over the course of about a year and a half. Electroboy is currently being made into a major motion picture. Not only is Andy working on a sequel to Electroboy, but he is also writing a self-help book for sufferers of depression and bipolar disorder. Please visit his official website for full bio and more information: http://www.electroboy.com
Andy joins us to discuss his book, his future projects, his own story and take callers who live with bipolar and depression. Feel free to call in even if it's anonymous.
