TeenScreen is being performed without adequate INFORMED CONSENT to parents and foster parents before mental health treatment is initiated. They are given no alternatives to traditional mental health care nor are they informed of treatment options. They are not screened for physical illnesses at all. There is NO information given to parents about the side effects and adverse reactions of medications, including death. It is against our own CODE OF ETHICS as nurses and the medical profession to allow this to happen. WE should be the advocates for these patients and insist on LAWS requiring INFORMED CONSENT in all states. Go to this website http://www.teenscreentruth.com/ now for the straight info on TeenScreen, then sign the petition below. Join me in going to our states capitals and lawmakers and insist on FULL INFORMED CONSENT for any screening and treatment for mental health. Nurses should take their role as patient protectors and advocates to the next level, changing society for the better.
