Prato Research Collaborative for change in parent and child mental health

Editorial perspective on principles and recommendations for working with children and parents living with parental mental illness

Both the 2021 Victorian Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System and the 2020 federal Productivity Commission Inquiry Report highlight the impact of a parent’s mental illness on their children, and the need to break the cycle of mental illness in families. Professors Darryl Maybery and Andrea Reupert from Monash University established a research group comprising more than 50 researchers from 12 countries, the Prato International Research Collaborative for Change in Parent and Child Mental Health. The groups work was recently highlighted in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, outlining the key principles and recommendations for working with families living with parental mental illness. A key focus of the position paper is for mental health services to become more proactive with parents in their care as such times offer a critical opportunity for prevention and early intervention with their children.
