Supporting kids living with a parent with mental illness

Resources for early childhood

Children of Parents with a Mental Illness (COPMI) is a national initiative which aims to promote better mental health outcomes for children living in families where parents suffer from mental illness.

Figures show that more than a million Australian children live in homes where at least one parent has a mental illness and the range of factors associated with living in these environments can have a negative impact on a child's development and wellbeing.

COPMI works to improve the outcomes for these children by developing information and resources for parents, community members, children, school and early childhood settings to support families where one or more parents has a mental illness.
