St. Petersburg Film Screening Reveals Psychiatric Abuse of Children
Russian educators, professionals and students learn of the often-fatal practice of prescribing dangerous psychiatric drugs to children—a practice that is on the rise in Russia.
St Petersburg, Russia, March 23, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Citizens Commission on Human Rights St. Petersburg held a special screening of the Dead Wrong documentary March 3, attended by the heads of educational institutions and children’s centers, doctors, lawyers and sociology and psychology students.
The prescribing of dangerous psychiatric drugs to Russian children is on the rise. Dead Wrong tells the tragic stories of several families whose children were the victims of this practice.
Every year, psychiatry invents new so-called "disorders" for which no standard physical test exists. One of the most popular diagnoses is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Any active child is at risk of being labeled ADHD and drugged with highly dangerous stimulants.

Lacking factual information, Russian parents are more easily influenced to administer these highly dangerous psychotropic drugs to their children.
Those attending the film screening were encouraged to analyze the facts presented and draw their own conclusions. Their comments included: “This issue needs to be covered by the media.” “This provokes a storm of emotions.” “Parents and teachers need to see this film. It can save children’s lives.”
