This chapter discusses the findings in this book and locates them in a broader context of how professionals might identify and respond to the needs of parents with mental illness and children who may have to care for them. It offers a model, or mapping device, which will be of practical use to professionals in these fields, to help with the more effective and sensitive intervention in meeting the needs of families where parents have mental illness and where children provide care. While the mapping device offers a practical way forward for professionals, the position of parents with mental illness and children who care for them must also be placed within a broader socio-political context.
