One of the things that really struck me at the Pat Deegan event was how many people
stood up and argued with her that it wasn’t a good thing to go off your meds. Funny thing
was, Pat never said go off your meds. And her answer to anyone with that kind of remark/
challenge/question was always the same, “ I don’t tell people to start taking psychiatric
medication and I don’t tell them to stop taking it.” It was like people expected her to be this
radical anti-drug person and that’s what they heard, whether she said it or not.

life, a sense of mastery, self-esteem, like you have a purpose, a reason to get up and a
reason to live. But she doesn’t necessarily mean no drugs. For her, being a good partner
and a good mother are parts of her personal medicine. If internal things are bad and she
takes so much medication that she sleeps on the couch all day and can’t do what she needs to do for her personal medicine, that doesn’t work. So maybe she can take enough pill medicine to keep the voices quieter, but not so much that her personal medicine is jeopardized. She says, “Laughter, food, sex, exercise, meditation, they all change our biochemistry. Who is to say what is medicine? Pill medicine and everything else is all in the service of our whole life.” I’ll tell you, I could probably put something from her talks in every Bulletin for the next year and not repeat myself. It was supremely worthwhile.

Severance law overturned: Disabled workers must get same compensation, court finds
The highest court in
Ontario has overturned a section of the Employment Standards Act which allowed employers to refuse severance pay
for persons unable to continue working on a particular job due to an illness or injury. The Ontario Court of Appeal said
that the Act had violated the Charter in this respect. “The court was ruling in a case that began after Toronto nurse
Christine Tilley injured her knee in a waterskiing accident and developed complications, including depression.” (Article
by Tracey Tyler, Legal Affairs Reporter, Toronto Star, Thursday, May 5, 2005, page A1)
Actor-Patients’ Requests for Medications Boost Prescribing for Depression
Researchers funded by the U.S.
National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) have done some interesting research which appears to show that patients
who ask for medication for depression are more likely to receive it.
Actor-patients were randomly assigned a disorder (major depression or adjustment disorder) and a type of
medication request based on the assumption that the direct-market approach of advertising medications directly to
consumers could encourage patients to seek effective care. They made brand-specific requests for Paxil®, saying they
learned about the medication from a commercial; or general requests for medication, not a specific brand, saying they
viewed a television program about depression which ‘got them thinking’. Actor-patients assigned “none” made no
request concerning medications.
People with major depression manifest several symptoms that, in combination, interfere with the ability to work,
study, sleep, eat, and enjoy once pleasurable activities. Such a disabling episode of depression may occur only once
but more commonly occurs several times in a lifetime. Adjustment disorder is an abnormal and excessive reaction to a
life stressor, such as starting school, getting divorced, or grief (for example, car accidents, natural disasters, medical
conditions). In addition to mental health symptoms, actor-patients in the study complained of either wrist or back pain.
Actor-patients exhibiting major depression who made brand-specific requests (53 percent) or general requests for
medication (76 percent) were more likely to receive a prescription than those who made no request (31 percent). In the
adjustment disorder group, those who requested brand-specific medications were more likely to receive a prescription
(55 percent) than those who made a general (39 percent) or no request (10 percent). When actor-patients asked for
Paxil® and received a prescription, the prescribed medication was Paxil® or its generic equivalent about 25 percent of
the time in major depression and 60 percent of the time in adjustment disorder. (Press release, National Institute for
Health, Wednesday, April 27, 2003) Parents faced with a terrible choice
The Toronto Star profiled the plight of the family of Ryan Frotten, a 10-year-old
who has severe mental health problems and can only get the help he needs if his parents give him up to Children’s Aid
Society (CAS) custody. Andre Marin, Ontario’s new Ombudsman, has started an investigation into the practice of
parents of children with special needs having to give up their children to the CAS to get needed services. His final
report was to be tabled in the Legislature and made public on Thursday, May 26. (Article by Kerry Gillespie, Queen’s
Park Bureau, Toronto Star, Saturday, May 21, 2005, page F3) Six days a week, run from the dark side
An article in the Globe and Mail (excerpted from the Wall Street Journal)
discussed the lack of emphasis on daily exercise as a way to beat depression. The article states that “psychologists
are much more aware of exercise as an anti-depressant…psychologists have produced the majority of the research on
exercise and depression.” The writer suggests from his interviews of psychiatrists that some psychiatrists aren’t even
aware of the body of literature supporting exercise as a treatment for depression, and quotes California psychiatrist Dr.
James Lake saying that “because of collective professional values and financial interests of academic psychiatry,
research priorities have almost exclusively targeted psychopharmacology.” (Article by Kevin Helliker, Globe and Mail,
Tuesday, May 24, 2005, page A13)

Even Wal-Mart’s leaving…
An article by Jeff Gray explained the difficulties that the neediest residents in southeast
Scarborough, including the mentally ill, have especially now that Morningside Mall is slated for demolition. Both
WalMart and the Dominion Store, the two anchor tenants of the mall which is located at Morningside Avenue and
Lawrence Avenue East, have left. The East Scarborough Storefront, which is also located in Morningside Mall and
also serves the mentally ill, is losing most of its federal funding and may have to close in six months. (Globe and Mail,

Pensions for stress disorder skyrocket
The number of Canadian Armed Forces veterans receiving disability
pensions for PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) has increased more than 40-fold over the past decade, from just 25
in 1995 to 1,141 last year. There are now over 5,000 ex-soldiers on disability pension due to PTSD. “Veterans Affairs
spokeswoman Janice Summerby.linked the spike in the number of PTSD cases to deployments by soldiers to such
hot spots as Bosnia and Rwanda, growing public awareness and government efforts to highlight the issue.” (Article by
Colin Freeze, Globe and Mail, Saturday, May 14, 2005, page A1)

Revenue Canada is withholding Income Tax Refunds and GST Rebates from
thousands of people who Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) says owes
Some of these debts go back many years. Often people can’t appeal to the Social Benefits Tribunal about how much the debt is or whether they owe the debt at all. There are things that can be done, including advocating with Revenue Canada that withholding your income tax will cause you hardship, especially if you have an illness, and they can decide not to withhold or to use a sliding scale. Also, they should not withhold the GST if your income is under $19,000. If this is happening to you or to someone you know, go to a legal clinic. The people at Parkdale Community Legal Services, 1266 Queen Street West are the ones who are the experts in this and if your local legal clinic needs more information, they can get it from them. 416 531-2411 x 231.
