Our expert says:
OK< so your doc thinks there is Depression, ADHD and Separation Anxiety. You describe school refusal and even thoughts of suicide. Is this being treated by a GP ? If so, I strongly suggest that the child should be re-assessed by a good local child psychiatrist for a second opinion and further advice. It sounds like a wider range of treatment should be considered, including counselling for the school refusal, rather than merely accepting it.
