Dr. Darla Hinshaw walks up to the podium in the Indiana Senate chamber. She's there to tell lawmakers about the children she treats as a psychiatrist and the issue standing between kids and effective treatment.
She tells a story of a foster care teenager who was admitted into a facility on a Friday.
"He continued to be aggressive," Hinshaw says. "He punched walls, easily irritated into aggression."
When his Department of Child Services caseworker was reached on Sunday, the teen started a new medication.
