Griffiths, Huw; Boland, Vikki; Gilliland, David; McKernan, Bronagh; Shields, Liz
Child Care in Practice, v13 n2 p125-135 Apr 2007
This article explores the interface between adult mental health issues and child development. It refers to the literature on the impact of parental mental health difficulties on children's developmental trajectories. The article then describes a pilot scheme involving a partnership between the Northern Ireland Association of Mental Health and Homefirst Community Trust in which non-professional staff supported families in which there were parental mental health difficulties and problems with the children's behaviour or development. Reference is made to an evaluation of the project conducted by an independent researcher, and the implications for practice arising from the scheme are noted and discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
