Within the context of families who have a parent with mental health problems, this e-learning module explores how to identify the outcomes parents and children want for themselves and how these can be made central to planned supports and interventions. It shows how to use the 'think child, think parent, think family' approach and the Family Model to help to identify interventions that address the needs of the whole family and explores screening, active signposting and early intervention, and their importance as points of intervention during the care pathway. Individual sections cover: the outcomes families what; screening and active signposting; and early intervention and social inclusion.
