How parents with mental health difficulties and their children can be supported successfully

This open access article is worth a read and forms part of the ‘Learning from success series – Improving practice and working together across health and social care ‘.

Research has established the potential direct and indirect impacts of mental illness on parenting, the parent-child relationship, and the child, and the extent to which this poses a public health challenge. Problems with how adult and children’s services understand and deliver support to parents with mental health problems and their children have also been identified. However, less is known about how parents with mental health difficulties and their children can be supported successfully.

This article captures different perspectives (policy, research, professional and family) about what constitutes success and the contributions that lead to success.
