Ex rel Watson v. King-Vassel, part of PsychRights’ Medicaid Fraud Initiative Against Psychiatric Drugging of Children & Youth, goes to pre-trial conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this Tuesday, December 3rd. “This may end up being where the case is decided for all practical purposes,” according to attorney Jim Gottstein; “I know it is way short notice, but if you can come to support us (Milwaukee Federal Courthouse,  517 East Wisconsin Avenue, at 8:30 a.m.) in trying to stop the massive psychiatric drugging of children that would be great.”

  1. I think someone should sue NAMI “national alliance on mental illness” for promoting the use of neuroleptics in children and youth. See “Risperidone for Adolescent Aggression” Medical Focus, Winter 1996 http://web.archive.org/web/19961221104126/http://www.nami.org/

    They are still pushing nueroleptics off label today ! “Antipsychotic medications and mood stabilizers have been proven to be effective in treating oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder.”
