    Thank you Dr. Dafoe for posting this. Two things stand out for me: 1) that Dr Keith Gargethy says 30 years have been wasted. 2) The high suicide rates were not mentioned in the article; many reached a point where the pain was no longer sustainable and they took a final exit.

    My comment: if 30 years have been wasted, and so many young lives needlessly lost, it's imperative that governments and medical researchers move on this. This publicity should help, but it needs more.
