I would want to find out the specific mental illness and how the diagnosis was determined. I would familiarize myself with the medication prescribed and it’s side effects. I would talk to all the relevant adults involved to see how they feel this child is affected by his diagnosis and make sure there are proper resources and support for the child. I would try to see how medication is administered to see if regularity exists -I would want to talk to the child about they feel physically and emotionally about the diagnosis and treatment if they are old enough to have this conversation.
