Examines the interventions made by professional workers from a range of different disciplines in families with dependent children and a mentally ill parent. The authors compare responses of professionals in ten European countries and one state in Australia. The analysis of the differences sheds new light on both the inherent and system-determined difficulties in helping families to manage their situation effectively.

* Features the only comparative study of mental health social services and the law governing compulsory hospital admission.

* Covers a current "hot-button" topic that is growing in importance as the impact of social policy developments on children over time becomes more apparent.

* Offers a unique perspective due to the focus on the impact of children of mentally ill parents and the international systems that deal with child protection.
