Piecing The Puzzle Together: Raising young people when mental illness is part of your life

The COPMI national initiative, 2009

This booklet is for parents living with a mental health problem or mental illness, whose children are aged between 2 and 7 years. It's also for partners, family and friends. It contains helpful ideas about being the best parent you can when you're not as well as you'd like to be and ways to support your child's development during their special early years.   Produced in consultation with parents who have a lived experience of mental illness, their carers and supports, workers, academics and policy makers. A detachable care plan folder is included. Download to view, or order in hard copy from the COPMI website (with free delivery within Australia only.)
