Groundbreaking Video Includes Akathisia for the 1st Time

Suicide prevention initiatives should not keep akathisia in the dark. MISSD is pleased our latest video includes akathisia as a suicide risk factor. While akathisia-induced deaths are not the same as traditional deaths of despair caused by depression, akathisia is frequently misdiagnosed as depression — and then mistreated. This video was a collaboration with No Shame On U and funded by an UpStart grant. Please see and share. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2r9lcvh90kE
