Hearing voices

Last December my 11 year old was diagnosed with depression after he told me he wanted to kill himself. He's been off his Prozac for a couple of months (with the doctor's approval). Tonight he tells me he hears voices in his head and that he's heard them since before he was diagnosed. These voices tell him to hurt others when he's made or to kill himself. he said they confuse him and make it difficult to know what's really. Is this related to the depression or could it be something worse?

Please consider eliminating the possibility of food sensitivity.
I am personally  aware of a number of cases, where children exhibited violent or suicidal behavior which were caused by reactions to gluten, dairy, sugar etc. and in one particular case tomatoes!
Note:I have trained in the "Allergy Antidotes" system by Sandi Radomski

An exhaustive food elimination diet is well warranted!
Opioid like chemicals  in dairy and wheat can cause psychiatric problems.
Increased immune sensitivity to gluten has also been reported in schizophrenic patients, and the connection between gluten intolerance and schizophrenia has been established for many years!
50% of people sensitive to gluten are also sensitive to dairy due to a process called cross-reactivity, where the immune system reacts the same to dairy as in gluten, since their molecular structure is very similar.
Best wishes,
Niko

I think you should spend more time with your child in developing his interests more and more in activities like music, art, sports or books, to keep his mind occupied into something good and healthy, something positive, to help him keep his mind from wandering into thoughts that are negative or destructive toward self or others.

Gardening, nurturing to plants and flowers also nourishes us from inside towards the most positive force on earth, the nature, a fine example of hope and survival.
