Psychotropic Medication Tool-Kit

The Psychotropic Medication Workgroup created the Psychotropic Medication Tool Kit to assist counties in easily accessing information about the oversight and monitoring of psychotropic medication for children in the dependency system.  The materials provided below provide an overview of commonly prescribed medications for children and youth, guidance from the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the federal Department of Health and Human Services.  Additionally, courts and county children and youth agencies might find the one-page court summary document helpful in organizing and providing specific information on psychotropic medication to the court.
