Critical Dialogue with Dr. Dean Fergusson| October 6, 2006
Research shows that one is twice as likely to commit suicide while on a pharmaceutical anti-depressant drug compared to placebo. Dr. Dean Fergusson, of the Ottawa Health Research Institute, explains his research to Angela Bischoff during the recent Healthy Mind Body Planet Tour.
On March 4, 2004 Angela's husband, Tooker Gomberg jumped off the Macdonald Bridge in Halifax while under going treatment with the anti-depressant drug, Remeron. She turned her grief into action, and after two years of research published Depression Expression, and embarked on a coast to coast, 24 Canadian community speaking tour with friends Bridget Haworth and Kelly Reinhardt. This interview is one of many voices they heard along the way.
