Contact Robert

I like hearing from people. The lack of community discussion among frontline child welfare advocates is one of the reasons I started a blog in the first place. The best way to contact me about any given post is to just leave a comment on it.

I also appreciate getting tips about events, gossip, or anything else. If you want to contact me directly, you can email at robertlatham.esq@gmail.com.

Disclaimers:

  1. I do not provide legal advice via email, this blog, or in the comments. I also don’t accept new cases through this blog. You can call the Children & Youth Law Clinic or the Florida Bar Referral Line for legal assistance.
  2. I don’t approve comments that include details about specific cases or families. I also don’t approve comments that are abusive or rude. I’m not here for that.

Thanks for reading!

Mr. Latham,
Enjoy your blog and even your love of individual liberty and freedom. I am not sure if you’re practicing dependency but I have a 15 year old dependency case that will be on your radar within the year. Wanted to run the issues by you. I am the foster mother/relative caregiver/adoptive mom of half-siblings stuck in DCF hell. The story is interesting…do you have an email I can reach you at?

“Too Many, Too Much, Too Young” was the title of a project undertaken by Medicaid medical directors from 16 states, according to an NYT article, “Poor Children Likelier to Get Antipsychotics” (12/12/09). See:

According to the NYT, results of the project were to be published “next year,” i.e., 2010.

Do you know if the results were published?

The National Center for Youth Law is has a project on this issue, the PsychDrugs Action Campaign. If you are interested, you can access an article on it in the current issue of our newsletter, “Can Antipsychotic Medications for Foster Children Be Better Regulated?,” via
