The US National Center for Youth Law has launched an “action campaign” to educate and rally the public and persuade federal and state officials to strengthen efforts to reduce the psychiatric drugging of children and youth in foster care.
“The National Center for Youth Law invites you to participate in a campaign to end the inappropriate and harmful sedation of tens of thousands of foster children,” states the press release. “High doses of psychotropic ‘antipsychotic’ drugs produce lethargic, ‘zoned out’ children, preventing their normal development. Medical guidelines do not sanction such sedation… The federal government’s initiative is likely to succeed only if organizations and individuals make clear the need for prompt action. We are asking you to join us in communicating that message to federal and state officials, to Congress, and to state legislators.”
