Experts have concerns that children with mental health conditions do not always receive appropriate treatment, including concerns about appropriate use of psychotropic medications (which affect mood, thought, or behavior) and about access to psychosocial therapies (sessions with a mental health provider). These concerns may be compounded for low-income children in Medicaid and children in foster care populations who may be at higher risk of mental health conditions. This book examines the use of psychotropic medications and other mental health services for children on Medicaid and in foster care; and other related Health and Human Services (HHS) initiatives.
