The Lakewood teen charged in the fatal stabbing of a Longmont woman on November 18 reportedly had been receiving mental health treatment at the time of the incident.
Aiden von Grabow, 15, charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing death of 19-year-old Makayla Grote, was working with school district mental health and community mental health workers, according to a spokeswoman for Jeffco Public Schools.
Did that mental health treatment include psychiatric drugs, which have well-established links to violence? Is this yet another in the long list of senseless acts of violence linked to the use of mind-altering psychiatric drugs?
Psychiatric drugs were found disproportionately linked to acts of violence in a 2010 analysis of prescription drug side-effects data from the Food and Drug Administration’s adverse event reporting system.
There are at least 28 warnings from international drug regulatory agencies and numerous research studies concerning the violence-related effects of psychiatric drugs.
As a public health matter, the public deserves to know how many of the horrifying, senseless acts of violence that are becoming so commonplace are linked to the use of psychiatric drugs.
WARNING: Anyone wishing to discontinue or to change the dose of a psychiatric drug is cautioned to do so only under the supervision of a competent medical doctor because of potentially dangerous, even life-threatening mental and physical withdrawal symptoms.
