News: Critical and ethical mental health
The CEMH held a film screening of Medicating Normal last Thursday 16 September to raise funds for the Lived Experience Leadership and Advocacy Network (LELAN). LELAN is a peak body that empowers South Australians with lived experience of mental distress and/ or social injustice by amplifying their voices, influence and leadership to drive change. Please visit their website for more information about their work and opportunities to get involved in.

A 2020 article published in Frontiers in Psychiatry by Boaden et al.: 'Anti-depressants in Children and Adolescents: A Meta-Review of Efficacy, Tolerability and Suicidality in Acute Treatment' purported to contrast the efficacy and tolerability of several antidepressants in treating children and adolescents diagnosed with different psychiatric disorders. In response to this article, we submitted a letter to the Editor of Frontiers (for publication) concerning the integrity of Boaden et al.’s analysis. We have received no response to our letter that was sent 8 October 2020 (see below) and it was not published by Frontiers.
