Parents & Mental Health

The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has recently published a research briefing entitled Experiences of Children and Young People Caring for a Parent with a Mental Health Problem. This document is an excellent summary of the challenges faced by children who find themselves in this role, and contains a useful list of further reading for those with a particular interest in this area.

Further information on this topic can also be found on the website of the Parental Health and Child Welfare Network; particularly recommended is the 'Resources' page, which contains links to numerous useful items from around the Web. If you found the briefing useful then you may also want to take a look at the full list of SCIE briefings, as they cover a range of different social care topics.
