This chapter discusses interviews undertaken with mothers with mental health problems in the two study sites, A and B. While there has been significantly more readiness in recent years to acknowledge and identify differing professional perspectives in work with families with mental health needs, the consequences of these differences for families have not as yet been fully explored. That research which explores the perspectives of parents with mental health needs has emphasised parents' experiences of being pathologised by services and of services being targeted on crises rather than delivered in a preventive or aftercare form. The study aimed to interrogate service users' experience of both mental health and child care services in more depth and to examine need alongside attitudes to services.
