Many stop taking their medication because they believe they no longer need it.
Many never wanted to take it in the first place and quit immediately.
To force a patient to receive medications, another court hearing must be scheduled and the judge must rule that this can be done. Therefore, forcing a patient to accept some form of birth control such as the birth-control implant must come from a conservator who gives permission for the device to be placed and a judge who determines the hospital can do this against the patient’s wishes. Legally, a procedure such as tying the patient’s tubes to prevent further pregnancies is nearly impossible.
This number leaves out those adults for whom their mental illness does not represent a major inability to think and function in society, similar to the numbers assessed by the Canadian study of adolescent girls.
A patient cannot be forced to do or accept anything without the clinicians going through a series of legal procedures.
A paranoid schizophrenic can reject any and all medication simply by saying “no,” unless he or she becomes violent.
These are just two examples of a problem that is becoming more and more apparent and heart-breaking in clinical psychiatric centers.
The fate of these children is largely unknown—that is, until they return to those very same psychiatric centers later in life as patients.
If the children are not removed immediately from the patient’s custody and put into the state foster system, they often have to be closely monitored by social workers throughout their lives.
