am not sure I understand why R boy isn't under psychiatric care
he won't engage tho - refuses to talk - they gave up when he turned 16. psychiatrist and psychologist - they still do the reports in the meetings - i have not been allowed copies despite parental responsibility and repeated requests...
I've asked to talk with the psychologist
no - not allowed - R says so.
their letter says...
These reviews have been chaired by an Independent Reviewing Officer and copies of the plan have been given to R and to The House. R has asked that you were not invited to the meetings and that you did not receive a copy of the reports.
We agreed to his request, but in the light of this specific request from yourself to receive the reports I will ask Mr P to explain to R that the reports will have to be shared with you.
I called them on it, faking the "solicitor" talk - but it makes no difference, if R wishes to move out ... he can - he's old enough in years.
I've been asking for the reports and meeting minutes - I have been refused. R is in a 24/7 with this 'scaffold' around him - he is also over 16 and can ditate whether or not I am given any information. He'll now be going it alone.
It amazes me that this can happen - I can fight for his rights tho he doesn't know it, but no-one listens to my rights - I have none...
R made that decision
They never helped him psychologically - they say they do not think he will engage until he's 30 years old..
Meanwhile - sit back, wait and hope one day he will understand.
I have demanded that he receives some support - they say they may be able to fund his keyworker on a private basis post 18 for a few hours a week.
he will take control of his life, be on his own...
and... what has been achieved in the last few years...
makes me feel sick.
not toppling - just tired - tired of it all.
