A Multi-Perspective Exploration Of Health Visitors’ Family Focused Practice With Mothers Who Have Mental Illness And Their Families: A Mixed Methods Study Protocol

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Maternal mental illness is a major public health issue and can adversely affect the whole family [1]. Worldwide, about 10% of pregnant women and 13% of women who have just given birth experience a mental illness, primarily depression and anxiety [2]. Increasingly, research and policy are recognising the benefits of a family focused approach to practice [3] [4]. This approach emphasises the family as the unit of attention. Currently, little research is available which has explored Family Focused Practice (FFP) in health visiting. This study aims to explore health visitors’ FFP with mothers who have mental illness and their partners.
