My child came stable on medications, and they changed meds without consulting with me nor reading any of her background at all. I didn't even know of the med changes for a few weeks. I know they cannot love my child like I do, but it seems as though they're trying to turn my child into a zombie, to make her easier to "deal" with. Therapy isn't important, only med management. This is such a frustrating situation, knowing that by the time my child gets out there is minimal chance for my child to have a functional life, work, school, etc. the entire mental health community seems to be focused only on medicating people so they don't feel things, instead of focusing on therapy.
