Flying over the radar: Changing practice to support children and families where a parent has a mental illness

Australia is a leader in the field of bringing about broad systemic change in practice to improve outcomes for children and families where a parent has a mental illness. This population of children and families used to “fly under the radar” of services, particularly adult mental health services.

A webinar was held on Thursday February 25th and was hosted by the Australian Institute of family Studies, Child family Community Australia (CFCA). It described the significant shift in thought leadership, policy and practice that has occurred to change service delivery and to promote systemic child and family inclusive approaches. Examples of changing practice within Victoria were also presented, including useful models for supporting parent-child relationships in the context of parental mental illness.

The full webinar recording, including slides, is now available online

The webinar was presented by Rose Cuff, FaPMI (Families where a parent has a mental Illness) Statewide coordinator at The Bouverie Centre, Victoria, and Brad Morgan, Director of the National COPMI (Children of Parents with a Mental Illness) Initiative, in Adelaide.
