Comments: This is a much needed service as there are many children growing up in families where one or both parents have significant mental illnesses.
Some mental health issues are difficult enough for adults to handle but it must be very hard for children when their own survival depends on parents who,at times, are not able to provide a secure, consistent and peaceful home for their children.
There is also much dislocation of families in our society where families are located away from their extended family groups and this further isolates the children from the support they might otherwise receive from an extended family group.
So I applaud groups such as yours that tries to make a difference for these children.

Comments: The key to this is the parents getting the right kind of help as this will significantly reduce the burden of the children. Mental Health systems are by no means easy to deal with and they need to improve on their communication and other practices to lift the burden on carers and in this case, for child carers who need more support. People with mental illness are just not getting the help from services that are available and this is due to poor communication and other practices in the mental health system. The system doesn't engage carers very well at all, and for child carers the level of engagement would be very poor. Too much is pushed onto carers.

Community understanding of mental illness is very poor and mental health systems do not provide adequate information about diagnosis and treatments and focus too much on a medication approach. Community awareness and understanding of the poor medication-centric practices in mental health systems is almost non-existant.

Refer to my site http://www.communities.mentalwakeup.com, or more specifically
http://communities.mentalwakeup.com/tiki-index.php?page=Mental%20Health%20Care%20Status%20Summary, or http://communities.mentalwakeup.com/tiki-index.php?page=carers, or http://communities.mentalwakeup.com/tiki-index.php?page=diagnosis for further details. I would be very happy to help more through web and other assistance on a voluntary basis - there are many ways to approach this. You have my email contact details (could not find one on your site). regards Steve
