Mental illness is common—and often presents for the first time, worsens or comes to attention with the demands of a young infant. This is also when the family are adjusting, wanting to do their best—and a critical time for attachment, the blueprint of future relationships which can protect against later mental health problems for the children. This training looks at the potential interplay between parental mental illness and attachment problems, and how working with these families can provide a better outcome for them all.
