Join hosts Laurie Ann Smith, Canada Regional Director and Elizabeth Brawley, Southern Regional Director as they discuss the issue of how to help children cope with a mentally ill parent. Mental illness in families can be very hard on every member of the family, especially children as they try to understand the behaviours of their parent or both parents experiencing these difficulties. The stigma that continues to surround Mental Illness may cause the family and children to have problems of their own as they attempt to maintain their lives. Join us for a look at how Mental Illness effects families and children as we look at information that will hopefully shed some light and hope on the situation.
