Added: 27th Jul 2017

An epsiode of Panorama titled A Prescription for Murder? was broadcast on BBC One last night.

The show investigated links between SSRI antidepressants and psychosis and violence.

Margaret Edwards, director of strategy and communications at SANE, says: “We would be worried if, following this programme, people were deterred from taking SSRI antidepressants. These medications, along with talking therapies and other interventions, are an important treatment option, and we would urge anyone with concerns to discuss them with their doctor.”
