Children of Parents with Mental Illness (1999) contributed towards the provision of a context for those working with children and their families. This book takes us one step further, with a focus on personal and clinical perspectives. The book includes the insights and experiences of a child and adults who live with, or grew up with, a parent with mental illness. Their personal accounts clearly show the need for children to belong, to have someone to talk to, and the imperative of thinking of all family members when a parent has a mental illness. These issues are also highlighted in other chapters which address: talking with children, thinking systemically about adolescents, a child’s psychotherapy, placement away from home, cultural considerations and peer support activities. In fact, the themes and issues in each chapter of the book are clearly reflected in other chapters, giving the book a powerful synergy. The experiences offered in the personal accounts are complementary to the chapters written by practitioners, who have a rich and diverse range of experiences, and offer well-researched and current information concerning their areas of expertise. Contributors come from five Australian states, and several are participants in the national COPMI* project, as members of the Reference Group or the National Consultation Group, or as Evaluators. The implemention of the COPMI project in 2001 demonstrates the persuasive effect of the voices of parents, of those who grew up with a parent with mental illness, and practitioners, as well as available evidence from research and evaluation.
