Re: Need Help ASAP! Teenage daughter has PTSD, depression, etc.

I am so sorry for what you are going through. I do not know if you have the authority to change her meds while she is in, but I would think if you are gravely concerned about her well being you could demand an independant evaluation. Do you and your daughter have regular physicians / psychiatrists you have seen? I would suggest getting a referral for someone local to where she is now, have her professionally evaluated and treatment recommended, and hopefully they can coordinate with your doctors where you live and care can be continued once she is back home with you. As far as the logistics of making this happen I would contact the local bar association and find out what steps / hoops are necessary and the time frame. Good luck.
