from 9:15am
Parental mental illness has been shown to affect attachment relationships
and cognitive, emotional, social and behavioral development of children.
These children are at an increased risk of developing psychiatric disorders
in childhood, adolescence and later in adulthood. In view of the potential
impact of parental mental illness on infant outcomes, prevention and
intervention at an early stage is of great importance.
