I'm going to court with my friend tomorrow. Her son, who was recently hospitalized with psychosis_nos (whatever that means) is totally out of control. The cops have been to her house twelve times in the past three days. They do nothing. They won't take him back at the hospital where he was because he behaved there. His psychiatrist (laugh now) doesn't believe there is anything wrong with him, in spite of the hospital diagnosis, other than "anxiety." He is physically and verbally aggressive, but calms down around professionals. He does go to Day Treatment, which his psychiatrist doesn't feel he needs. ALso, he does not act out there. They think she's stark raving nuts, I'm sure, when she says he is so aggressive. There is a long waiting list to see any other psychiatrist and she has begged and pleaded, but nobody will take him before the next free appointment they have. He has a CPS social worker, but they never see him acting out so they do nothing. She taped him having a fit and is going to sit in court tomorrow until the Judge will see her. She has the tape. The Judge has thus far done nothing. She can't get respite. She is going insane. Besides going with her and supporting her, does anyone have any suggestions what is left to do? My friend is about to lose her mind as is her spouse. She has four other kids (one other difficult child, his biological sister). Quick background: They were adopted at age 1 and 2, and their birthmother abused drugs and has bipolar. But nobody will diagnose him with bipolar. They keep giving him antidepressants and stims, which make him worse, but right now he isn't on anything. His last medication was straterra. The psychiatrist refuses to put him on a mood stabilizer. I have never heard of somebody trying so hard to get help and getting nowhere and I am at a loss what to tell her to do. So if you have any suggestions please let me know. In Wisconsin you are NOT allowed to give up your parental rates to get your child help. You have to keep your minor child with you. Help?
