Foster Children Put on Psychotropic Medication, Big Money for Foster Parents

johnny can poptrekkyandy/foter.comMint Press News explores the use of psychotropic medication in the foster care system, and specifically in Texas, starting with an example:
Hours after Texas Child Protective Services removed 5-year-old Tristen from the care of his mother and placed him in a foster home, Tristens foster parents took him to see a psychiatrist, citing concerns the young boy was depressed. That day, a psychiatrist prescribed Tristen three medications: one for anger, one for depression and one to help the 5-year-old relax.
Now an adult and out of the foster care system, Tristen says he recognizes he was depressed that day, but he says he never needed any medication his feelings were only natural given the circumstances.
They just took the thing that meant the most to me, he said.My family.
Passed from foster home to foster home all over the state of Texas, Tristen says no one ever asked him how the pills made him feel, despite the fact that he would often spend time in his room crying because he felt his medicines were slowly tearing his chest apart.
