— Kirstie Alley (@ kirstiealley ) October 2, 2017. Alley is one of several celebrity Scientologists who have spoken out against using psychiatric medications. Tom Cruise famously started a feud with Brooke Shields after he attacked her for her use of medication to treat post-partum depression.

Kirstie Alley is defending her faith in Scientology — and its stance on what she calls “psychiatric abuses” — after her tweet linking psychiatric drugs to the latest round of mass shootings got pushback online.

The Cheers actress, who has been a member of the Church of Scientology since 1979 and credits it with helping her overcome a cocaine addiction, shared a report titled “Psychiatric Drugs Create Suicide & Violence” on Twitter, which blames such medication for “self-harm” and “homicidal ideation.”

Medicaid bought sex offenders' erectile dysfunction drugs Registered sex offenders in New York received $63,000 worth of erectile dysfunction drugs and other sexual treatments courtesy of the state's publicly funded Medicaid program, according to an audit released Wednesday. Federal rules bar Medicaid coverage of sexual treatments for all recipients, not just sex offenders. Yet state Medicaid officials approved $930,000 in improper payments for the drugs between 2012 and 2018, according to the audit released by state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and first reported by The Associated Press.

Alley first shared the report after Roseanne Barr posted a YouTube video in which her son, Jake Pentland, vented about the reaction to the El Paso and Dayton shootings and accused the media of overlooking the impact of psychotropic drugs.

“I’m tired of people thinking it’s guns or that someone posted on f****** 8chan and likes anime, or maybe they’re bullied,” he said. “Everybody’s looking at the wrong f****** s*** and I’m tired of it. Nobody f****** wants to talk about the fact that somewhere between 90 and 95 percent of these shooters are on psychotropic medication.”

These commonly prescribed medications may increase your risk of dementia, study finds A study published Monday found a link between dementia and certain medications, including antidepressants, antipsychotics and antiepileptic drugs.

Kirstie Alley believes she has found a common denominator of mass shooters in the US. "One additional common denominator of 'shooters' is USA's mass usage of psychiatric drugs . Alley is one of several celebrity Scientologists who have spoken out against using psychiatric medications.

Alley then went on to call out the people being accused of sexual harassment and abuse for not having the guts to confront their accusers. According to her, the scenario right now actually hurts the “real victims of abuse” and the “innocent people.” Many have since criticized Alley ’s opinion on the matter.

While experts tell The Poynter Institute’s fact-checking arm Poltifact that there is “no scientific basis” for Pentland’s “unproven” claim about mass shooters and prescription drugs — which he insists in his video is not a “conspiracy theory” — Alley is among those who feel otherwise.

But many of Alley’s followers called her out for speaking out against psychiatric drugs. Some commenters credited medication with helping them treat anxiety and depression, and accused her of being biased against such drugs because she is a Scientologist.

The church outlines its views on psychiatry here, slamming the “nightmarish proportions” of antidepressants being marketed to the public, casting doubt on the existence of the diseases the drugs are intended to treat and writing it off as an “elaborate and deadly hoax.” The report shared by Alley hails from Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) International, a nonprofit organization founded by the Church of Scientology.
