Parental mental health problems can adversely affect the development, and in some cases the safety, of children. Growing up with a mentally ill parent can have a negative impact on a young person’s adjustment in adulthood, including their transition to parenthood. Children (particularly those with emotional, behavioural, or chronic physical difficulties) can precipitate or exacerbate mental ill health in their parents/carers. Parental mental health is something that can have a substantial impact on a child’s life, so having a concise knowledge of the subject is essential in order to work towards safeguarding children.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To understand what mental health is
  2. To be aware of the effect on children and family when a parent has mental health issues
  3. To understand the impact it may have on a parent and their ability to parent a child
  4. To consider the implications for children living with a mentally ill parent
  5. To recognise the challenges faced by looked-after children and agencies supporting around family contact
  6. To know how to support young people
