At a glance: think child, think parent, think family: a briefing for senior managers

Social Care Institute for Excellence, United Kingdom, 2010

This ‘At a glance’ briefing looks at how senior managers can improve the health, wellbeing and life chances of parents with mental illness and their families. Better collaboration between services for adults with mental health problems and children’s services is essential to achieving this.

This briefing, supported by the Mental Health Network at the NHS Confederation, summarises SCIE’s Think child, think parent, think family guide. It includes early findings from 10 implementation sites working to put the guide in to practice. The guide promotes a whole-family approach to parental mental health and child welfare.
