Think child, think parent, think family: Putting it into practice – Social Care Institute for Excellence – February 2012

“Key messages

Parents with mental health problems and their children need services that are effective and accessible for the family.
Getting it right for families is hard given workloads and organisational barriers, but can help tackle problems now and across generations.
Implementation sites in England and Northern Ireland have developed promising ways to ‘think family’ and improve services as a result.
By raising awareness, developing strategic goals, training staff and tackling stigma, sites have created the conditions for think family working to flourish.
By thinking family throughout the care pathway, individual staff can make small but effective changes for parents and children.
Further work in this area could produce further improvements.”
