We couldn't understand, 'cause this,

this just wasn't Matthew.

None of this was Matthew,

I mean, it was like,

made no sense, it made no sense.

That was the beginning of my story.

As a mother, I needed to make sense

of what had happened to my child.

There were so many

questions. What had we missed?

The first answer came six

months after Matthew's death

when my husband found a magazine article

that linked psychiatric drugs to suicide.

I was horrified.

And yet, I knew we had found the

answer to the biggest question of all,

"How could this have happened?"

The article answered some questions

but made me think of so many more.

I had to find out for

myself. I had to do something.

This is for you, Matthew.

Before, all I had ever

heard about psychiatric drugs

from the media, at schools,

in the doctor's office,

was how safe and effective they were.

You know, you feel sad and that means you

have a chemical imbalance in the brain.

Just take a pill and that will

help even you out, no problem.

But this certainly didn't

happen in Matthew's case.

Something was wrong with that

story and I needed to find out what.

But were there any professionals who

could tell me what's really going on?

Dr. David Stein, a psychologist who

has written many books and articles

against the use of psychiatric drugs

on children, agreed to talk with me.

So I made the three-hour

drive to see him.

Hi, how are you doing? Good to see you.

- I'm Celeste.

- I'm Dave Stein. Good to see you. Hi folks.

Tell me, what brought you to

drive all the way down here?

- Well, we went to a doctor,

a psychologist... - Okay.

...and my son was

diagnosed with depression

and we were told that it was being

caused by a chemical imbalance.

Is there such a thing as a

chemical imbalance in the brain
