Review:

This is an important study that sees children not as passive recipients of care but as active in the social world. Academics, students, policy makers and those working with children will learn much from this book. Pam Foley, School of Health and Social Welfare, Open University

With its critique of earlier literature, its new evidence and its useful overview of law and policy, this important book needs to be widely read and translated into practice. Mental Health Today.".. important reading for anyone working in the mental health field." Family Matters"This book deserves to be widely read by academics, policy makers, students and all people working within mental health and children's services." Journal of Social Policy"This is a valuable and readable contribution to the field and offers an opening into a hidden area for researchers, service providers and policy makers." Child and Family Social Work

... essential reading for those working with parents who have mental health problems or with young carers. The authors provide a comprehensive review of research as well as an excellent appendix on relevant legislation. Community Care

... essential reading for all those concerned with children and young people who care for parents with mental illness. ChildRight
