The stress, economic conditions and environmental factors are all kept out of the discussion, that is how neo liberalism works. Clever pharma marketers saw an opportunity to peddle more drugs for children, with no evidence of any good outcome. These drugs were foisted on poor children, children of color and foster kids to make them more labile, and easier to control. There were plenyt of industry funded researchers who went along with it, and designed their research for certain outcomes. None of the research followed these kids after they reached adulthood, or even tracked how many committed suicide.

Clever psychologists helped market this garbage by misleading the public, and sharing their pharma funded expertise on TV. Greedy psychologists like DR Phil, showed children's bad behavior on TV for entertainment.
