Wade, C., Cann, W., & Matthews, J. (2019). Introduction to special issue: parenting interventions and the mental health of children and parents. Advances in Mental Health, 17(1), 1-5. https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/18387357.2019.1585647
This special issue addresses how interventions focused on supporting adults in their parenting role are influenced by, and can influence child and parent mental health. The papers collected for this special issue explore aspects of the mechanisms via which mental health influences relationships and actions within the family, and how interventions focused on parenting support or skill building can influence the functioning of family members across the spectrum of severity and types of mental health difficulties in parents and children. The aim of this special issue was to stimulate discussion about how to best support good mental health in children and adults, and we believe the resulting collection presented herein successfully meets this aim.
