At present, children of parents with a mental illness are not recognised in any policy on mental health and wellbeing, despite the fact that this situation puts them at significant risk of becoming ill themselves. The UK is one of the only developed countries in the world that does not recognise this issue as a risk factor or have the necessary support and preventative interventions in place to mitigate this risk.

Our campaigns target policymakers and commissioners, arguing the case for simple low cost solutions in every local authority in the UK. The next generation of affected children should have the chance to live healthy and happy lives.
