Hi, everyone-- I'm a writer working on a national magazine article about young children and psychiatric medications. The article includes children who've received a diagnosis of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), ODD, bipolar disorder, depression, pervasive development disorder, and general anxiety disorder. I'm hoping to include many different parent perspectives-- parents who found medication a lifesaver for their child, parents who tried medicating their kids but stopped because of an unwelcome response, parents whose doctors recommended medications but are successfully using alternative therapies instead, etc. To protect families' privacy, pseudonymns will be used in the published article. If you're willing to participate, please email me your story at [email protected], and I'll send more details. Many thanks for your help.
