Synopsis: Parental mental illness challenges service providers in adult mental health, child welfare and childrenÕs mental health systems of care. This presentation describes the development and implementation of Family Options, a family-centered, strengths-based, family-driven intervention for families living with parental mental illness. Findings from the Family Options implementation study suggest strategies for the replication of the intervention, as well as recommendations for the enhancement of existing programs like childrenÕs systems of care to meet parentsÕ needs and improve outcomes for all family members.
