PSYCHOTROPIC MEDICATIONS AND OUR FOSTER YOUTH

Presented by Christine Meyer, Supervising Attorney, Guardian ad Litem Program

“You can’t patch a wounded soul with a Band-Aid.” As advocates for children, the Guardian ad Litem Program is not looking for a temporary fix for a child’s emotional needs. Foster care children are prescribed psychotropic medications at rates significantly higher than their same-aged peers. This training will provide attendees with an understanding and workable knowledge of the laws and policies that exist to protect and monitor the children and youth who are taking these powerful medications.
