Mental health prevention in a target group at risk: children of somatically ill parents

Objective

Children of ill parents are at risk of having mental health problems. In Europe, evidence based approaches to prevention are missing for this target group. In a project involving eight European countries, the mental health status of children exposed to parental illness will be studied and services shall be implemented with regard to differences in cultures and health systems. Based on acquired evidence, guidelines for effective and efficient preventive services in European countries will be elaborated. Objectives include 1. Analysis of children^TMs needs within adult medical care. 2. Implementation and evaluation of innovative counselling services. 3. Identification of risk and protective factors predictive for specific outcomes. 4. Development of efficient modules for counselling procedures. 5. Evaluation of all interventions as a base for integrating child- oriented services into standards of disease management for adult patients.
