Description

Ohio's system for handling mentally ill children is wrought with flaws. Parents are often forced to give custody of their children to the county they live in before the county will help pay to treat their mental illness. Even then, kids don't always get the help they need. "Ohio counties place more than 7,000 children a year in centers where some are abused, molested, and improperly drugged." The article is full of horrible stories about mistreatment paid for by taxpayer money.
