Evidence-based research summaries – COPMI ‘GEMS’


The aim of ‘Gateways to Evidence that MatterS’ (GEMS) is to provide a summary of recent Australian and international research concerning children of parents with a mental illness (aged 0-18 years), their parents and families. While research in this area is growing, there is a lack of evidence-based practice when working with families affected by parental mental illness.

These evidence-based research summaries have been prepared as a resource for those working in the field, and aim to provide a synthesis of available research that might guide and direct practitioners, and highlight current research and practice gaps.
