Background

In 2001 the State of Connecticut passed the first law in the Country that prohibited school personnel from recommending psychiatric drugs to parents for their children, Public Act 01-124. Connecticut legislation stood as a model where other States quickly followed with similar legislation. This law fueled a national movement that resulted in the Federal law “The Child Medication Safety Act”, which received overwhelming support from both political parties.
