    The rising Trends in prescription drugs for those dealing with mental disorders such as depression, anxiety and antipsychotics and how it harms our bodies.

    It’s common for people to get the winter blues, but should we all be running for prescription drugs for the feeling of a ‘quick fix’? According to the Mental Health Foundations statistics, 1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem within a year. With this in mind one can only imagine how many prescriptions and over the counter drugs are bought.
    Figures show that prescription of drugs for mental disorders increase by 6.8% each year on average with anti-depressants at 10% per year. The issue is not just in the UK but worldwide as many people live a stressful lifestyle and feel there is no alternative.

    Who agrees that this needs to change?
