Overview

This recent special issue is a well researched response to the repeated calls for progress in the evidence and evaluation basis of interventions for children and families where a parent has mental illness.

This important collection of reports brings together a wide range of expertise from Australian and international researchers, clinicians, consumers and carers. It offers some solutions to families with mental illness whilst also highlighting the difficulties encountered when developing a rigorous scientific evidence and evaluation basis when children are involved.

The aim of this collection is to reduce the schism between research, policy and practice and to encourage dialogue between all concerned; to ensure that the voices of all are heard and heeded in working together to advance mental health promotion, prevent mental illness, and foster early intervention approaches to mental health.

The promotion of mental health and prevention of mental illness is a strategic and policy priority in Australia and is reflected in similar directions internationally... To my mind this is a very important journal for mental health. Graham Martin OAM

This is an invaluable resource for researchers, clinicians, policy makers, consumers and carers alike.
