According to the San Francisco Chronicle of today "Local public schools have resisted TeenScreen. San Francisco Unified School District, for example, passed on TeenScreen because it can generate false positives and drain counseling resources, said spokeswoman Gentle Blythe."

But according to the Chronicle article, private schools in San Fran are still experimenting on kids with TeenScreen. "About 30 percent of San Francisco private school teens tested so far were found to be at risk... about half of those were referred for treatment."
On another front in Kenosha, Wisconsin: NAMI, TeenScreen and Signs of Suicide, all with major ties to the pharmaceutical industry are attempting to overwhelm the local school district and convince them to throw common sense out the window.
But the Kenosha Parent's Union is putting up a valiant fight. Please hook up with them and support them in any way possible: http://kenoshaparentsunion.org/index.php?option=com_joomlaboard&Itemid=27&amp;func=view&id=2&catid=1
