Children, young people and families

Forming a family and parenting is an important part of life, with many changes taking place. Both mothers' and fathers' mental health may be affected during this transition, which may influence their child's mental health.

Parental mental health problems, if untreated, can affect the long-term wellbeing of both parents and children. We work on a variety of innovative projects with children and young people and also host the Children and Young People's Mental Health Coalition.
