Andrea Reupert, Professor of Educational Psychology and Inclusive Education at Monash University, talking about Prevention and early intervention critical to ending the cycle of family mental illness. An international group of researchers led by Monash University have developed a series of principles and recommendations to assist children whose parents are living with a mental illness. The team of researchers have found that due to a range of factors, children whose parent/s have a mental illness are at risk for their own mental health problems and recommend that mental health services deliver support for the whole family and not only to individuals.
