The COPMI Consultant works across Adult and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services to support the needs of children and families where a parent experiences a mental illness or mental health disorder.  We provide:

  • Family focused interventions with children and families impacted by parental mental illness.
  • Joint family assessments with adult mental health staff.
  • Brief counselling and psycho-education with children and teenagers - debriefing and education about mental illness (the child or the parent has to be the client of mental health services).
  • Targeted group work with children.
  • Targeted parenting support programs (Tuning in to Kids and Circle of Security) for parents living with mental illness or a mental disorder, and
    their partners.
  • Training and consultation to mental health staff working with clients with dependent children.



Families with children under 18 years where parent, sibling or significant other family member are affected by mental illness.
