|Maria Bradshaw and I in Los Angeles 2012|
In early 2011 I met with Casper's Maria Bradshaw in Los Angeles. She had a story to tell.
Over the past year or so, Maria has told her story via many media outlets.
Maria and I met again earlier this year, she was presented with a human rights award...and rightly so.
Last night, in an exclusive interview with Seroxat Sufferers, Maria bared her soul and talked about the treatment of her only child, Toran.
It's an interview that pulls at the heartstrings, an interview that reveals how a young man, in the prime of his life, was let down by a series of blunders and mismanagement by a mental health system, by an educational system and by the pharmaceutical industry.
Prozac, the SSRi that Toran was prescribed, is an antidepressant widely prescribed to children and adolescents.
This is part 1 of 2.
Music for this podcast was provided by Ask Alfie and Arun Bhanot
Coming in Part II - Maria talks about the aftermath, Casper and the online RIP Trolling of her son.
