Living with a parent or carer who has mental health problems does not necessarily mean a child will suffer abuse, but there is a risk that there will be a negative impact. In this module we explore the challenges that different mental health issues pose, as well as a range of best practice tools which can be used to assess the needs of parents and support the welfare of children.
In order to put the issues into context learners can drop in to follow the story of one parent, Elena, as she firstly experiences mental distress and subsequently accesses services tailored to her needs.
