Ward of the state-currently under Wright County Guardianship. Parental rights have been terminated. History of aggressive behavior with homicidal and suicidal comments towards multiple people/on multiple occasions. On 11/15/23, patient was sent to a “calming room” at his school due to throwing a ball at another students face. This caused him to miss out on an outdoor activity that he wanted to attend. Patient was upset and punched one of his teachers (mental health support services personnel) in the nose, causing a broken nose. Had been living with bio-grandparents prior to this incident. He has been removed from foster homes in the past due to homicidal threats to the foster parents/others in the home.


UPDATE 11-15-2023: Still inpatient
Patient is a 15 yo M with a past psychiatric history of RAD, PTSD, and ADHD as well as unspecified mood disorder (MDD vs DMDD), spells of trembling, and unspecified anxiety disorder, mostly documented as GAD. Multiple previous inpatient admissions, most recently Feb 2023. Has had numerous ED visits since 02/2023 for aggression. He has a psychosocial history of early parental loss, institutional care, neglect, and profound physical and sexual abuse while living in an orphanage in Ghana following the death of his biological mother in child birth. He was adopted when he was seven years old. Since that time, he has struggled with physically aggressive behavior, typically triggered by losing control of situations by not getting what he wants, being challenged, etc., assaulting both parents and endangering siblings. He can also become agitated and engage in aggression and property damage at the school. When he is not aggressive, however, he presents as extremely polite, pleasant, playful, and affectionate, and he does not struggle with chronic irritability or agitation. His family has worked to keep him in the home and community by maintaining two residences, with father caring for him in a rental and his mother caring for his sibling in their family home for safety over the past three years. He has had numerous inpatient stays, crisis placement, shelter, and residential stays as well as outpatient psychiatric and counseling services in clinic and in the home. Still, his behaviors remain persistently dangerous, culminating in the sexual assault of his father on 10/21/23.

Update: Accepted by PrairieCare but waiting on funding. looking for respite while waiting.

A 17 year old, African American, assigned male at birth. He identifies with “both” genders (boy and girl) equally. Alternates between male and female persona. Medically stable and boarding on Pediatrics while awaiting placement disposition. History of being bullied.
Approaching his cluster of symptoms from the lens of comorbid autism spectrum disorder and mild intellectual developmental disorder is likely to lead to better treatment adherence and response to intervention.
Given his intellectual concerns and history of emotional dysregulation, the patient would benefit from residential treatment. Such a treatment facility should have access to mental health resources, independent living skills training, and regular recreational and social-emotional supports.


Patient is an 8 yr old that has a history of disruptive behaviors at school and at home. She has a history of PTSD ADHD reactive attachment disorder and is on quite a few meds for behavioral health. Apparently she did not sleep well last night and woke up this morning threatening to kill her family members and herself. She continued to escalate at home to the point where mom called psychiatry and they recommended that she come to the ED. She arrives in ED out of control hitting, biting, kicking, and screaming. Mom states that this type of behavior for her has happened frequently in the past but has not had an episode like this for a year or two. She apparently is doing quite well in school and has not had any recent issues. Mom states that when she has these outbursts or crisis that this is typical where she has just a sudden change in her behavior and becomes violent at home. She has not missed any of her medications. Mom denies fever, no recent cough no abdominal pain no nausea vomiting or other recent infections. Mom states that in the remote past she has had a UTI with high fever but typically infections have not caused behavior issues. Patient has an established psychiatrist and has had numerous hopitalizations regarding same issues. Started having visual hallucination yesterday, medication adjustment decreased (risperdal) decreased a couple of months ago with the thoughts that this may be contributing. Biological mother has history of bipolar disorder and grandmother and cousin has history affective schizoid disorder. For the past week her behaviors have been escalating and has been getting harder and harder to negotiate with child. She has threatened to kill her 3 yr old brother and mom concerned for safety of other children in the home.
