Excessive sleepiness is a well-known side-effect of much psychotrophic medication, particularly the older antipsychotics.When prescribing, psychiatrists should be willing to take lifestyle factors such as the possible need for waking quickly into account – for most people, there will be alternative forms of medication to try.Instead, Children’s Services would need to provide the court with evidence to demonstrate one or more of the following scenarios; Mental health advocacy services are experienced at helping parents to articulate and to explain to professionals their difficulties, and are skilled at helping parents to locate and request the help they need.Therefore, if a parent with current or historic mental health difficulties is able to explain and understand their difficulties and to explain the support they need, they should not find themselves in danger of losing their children.
Parents who have a similar need due to medication should therefore have a similar entitlement.
People who have mental health problems often find that any unexplained physical symptoms will be attributed to their mental health or behaviour: this is known as ‘diagnostic overshadowing’, and is very common.
Furthermore, Children’s Services and the NHS do not always share information as effectively as necessary, and records and letters can be inaccurate, worsening the problem.
Therefore, the court would insist that Adult Services provide the help parent needs as an alternative to removing the children.
In practice, however, single parents with both physical and mental health disabilities often have to work quite hard to access and secure funding for such levels of help.
Most people with a diagnosis of personality disorder have a history of childhood abuse or neglect, and some may therefore need guidance in understanding how to keep their own children safe and cared for.
