The impact of parental mental health on children

Dr Alan Cooklin

This lecture will examine the impact of parental mental illness on children. There are 175,000 young carers of parents with mental illness in the UK but maybe as many as 1,000,000 children affected by an adult's mental illness. They worry about their parents and perhaps be blame themselves, or fear that they will also 'catch' it. They often fall through the professional net, are seen as nobody's responsibility and receive no help. Film illustrations will be given of very small interventions which can help protect children from the negative effects.

Dr Alan Cooklin is a family psychiatrist. He is consultant to the Family Project for Major Mental Illness for Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust and honourary Senior Lecturer at University College London. He was consultant in charge of Paediatric Liaison Services for UCL Hospitals.
