Hi there sorry I haven’t gotten back to you until now! He has only had some of the issues he has always had anxiety issues and gets overwhelmed easily however the anger where he is doing these things have only started since feb/March this year and that’s the 1 thing that the Drs etc won’t listen to me about. He has been put on meds but they don’t really do a thing apart from make him sleep! I have asked for a med change but the Drs won’t do that either. Dr won’t go past a provisional diagnosis of anything until he has seen an OT and a speechy and we are still waiting for a OT to be in contact with us! We don’t know what to do or where to turn honestly! Any suggestions?

I have a 9 and a half year old boy! He is from a split home where his dad and I get along fine, we have both moved on and have new partners and other children also! He currently sees the local mental health team for his age group and been seeing a clinical psychologist also but we don’t feel like we are getting the help he is needing or we are needing either! He snaps at the smallest of things and becomes extremely aggressive and threatens to kill himself or others mainly his step parents and step brother! I have been left with my partner taking 1 of our children with him for a week away so that I am able to have my 9 year old due to safety concerns after he grabbed a knife and threatened with it resulting in police being called! Due to behaviour like this he has also had the school put in lock down! We are at a loss and I feel like I am failing everywhere currently as a parent! I need more help then we are getting! Where do I turn??
