Petition Completed to Stop Drug Crisis in US Military

8 October 2008 Update

We appreciate all who have signed this petition.

While it is too late to sign the petition in the below alert, you are encouraged to contact the Senate offices of both Sen. McCain and Sen. Obama to express your concerns.

Original alert:

Our soldiers deserve better than a bag of pills

With suicide rates higher than they’ve ever been, the stress of combat and long deployments, the US Military should be doing everything it can to address the mental health needs of its soldiers.

Instead, soldiers in crisis are currently being offered little more than pills.

They deserve better.

They deserve alternatives to the one-size-fits-all, pharmaceutical approach to mental health.

Show your support for alternatives and help raise awareness about this issue by signing our petition, here.

Time is running out!

On October 5, 2008 MindFreedom International will deliver your signatures to the campaign headquarters of both Barack Obama and John McCain.

Our aim is to raise awareness about the over-drugging of soldiers in the US Military and to encourage the candidates to make this an issue in their campaign.
