Parents as patients: Supporting the needs of patients who are parents and their children


In 1999, a College Working Party was established to consider the issues posed by ‘the patient as parent’ and the implications for children whose parents experience mental disorders. In 2002, the first Patients as Parents report was produced. The current Working Group was set up in 2007 to revise and update this report in the light of changes in policy, legislation, service configuration, demography and the accumulating evidence base.
