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. In contrast, far less is known about how parents with mental health difficulties and their children can be supported successfully.
The primary aim of Parental Mental Health and Child Welfare Work Volume 1: A Pavilion Annual 2016 is to begin to address this gap in research by capturing different perspectives (policy, research, professional and family) about what constitutes success and the contributions that lead to success. The annual will, share this information, tools and resources, in ways that are accessible, useful, and usable by, the broad range of professional groups involved in this complex area of practice.
Parental Mental Health and Child Welfare Work Volume 1: A Pavilion Annual 2016 forms the first volume of Pavilion’s new Annual series, which act as a yearly update on key research, policy developments and practice innovations, in the UK and elsewhere.
