Alexis has stayed in a psychiatric facility for the past few years because she struggles with suicidal thoughts/ideation. Her mother struggles with drug addiction and her father has been incarcerated for most of her life. She has a younger brother and older sister also in care. Recently, Alexis made enough progress to "step down" into a foster home and she has been doing well there. She is now placed with her younger brother which makes her very happy! She is working with a counselor on learning independent living skills to help her transition into adulthood.
