The DCSF Do Not Monitor Children Drugged Whilst in the Care of Local Authorities
A freedom of information request exposes the Department of Children, Schools and Families who do not monitor or hold any information on the number of vunerable children currently being given psychiatric drugs in the care system thus undermining their own regulations and the children’s home acts they constantly say has regulations on the drugging of children.
One would need to question how the DCSF can protect children in care from the misuse of psychiatric drugs if they do not monitor the use of these drugs given to vunerable children in local authority care. They do not monitor the doctors or the children given psychiatric drugs leaving vunerable children at risk.
Children in care are often diagnosed with depression, ADHD, emotional problems and various other mental health illnesses they dont have and the first answer is to whipp them to a doctor and give them drugs. This is not the answer and is a lazy way to deal with children who are in care to be cared for. The parents who complain are ignored as are the children. Two cases have recently been reported to no2abuse and I have seen evidence that shows there is a current problem on the drugs used on children in care.
Cases of children still being placed in adult mental health hospitals is a growing problem and higher numbers of children placed into secure units
So who is monitoring the safety and management of drugs and the doctors that prescribe them to such vunerable children?
Looked after children are at risk and during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s drugs given to vunerable children were not monitored and that led to thousands of children being wrongly drugged in care and given the fact the DCSF do not monitor the drugging of children in care we wonder how many more children are suffering in silence
Were you drugged in care? Are your children currently on any psychiatric drugs whilst in local authority care or in the last ten years? Have your children been prescribed drugs whilst in care for ADHD?
We would like to hear from you
