We perform studies and practices to provide evidence-based support to parents with a mental illness, their children, and family. We develop the support for the context of Japan in cooperation with researchers and clinicians in Finland, America, and Japan.

Evidence-based support for parents with a mental illness, their children, and family in Finland

While support for parents with a mental illness, their children, and family is important, evidence-based support in Japan has limitations. We visited Dr. Beardslee, a child psychiatrist and a leading expert on supporting children of parents with a mental illness. He developed the“Family Talk”which is preventive intervention is designed to help families identify the effects of parental depression, share individual experiences with parental depression, build on family strengths, improve family communication about depression, and develop strategies to promote mental health in parents and children. We learned the“Family Talk”and informed him of the current situation in Japan. That is, support for parents with a mental illness, their children, and family is important, however evidence-based support in Japan has limitations. We asked his advice about how to develop support and the concept (meaning) of support in Japan. Then, he introduced us to the case in Finland.

“The Effective Child & Family Programme” was begun in Finland by Dr. Solantaus, a child psychiatrist, is a leader of this project, in 2001 to develop methods and infrastructure foe mental health services to meet needs of the paretns’ families and children throughout the country.

We completed the Japanese edition of the handbook for parents with a mental illness and their children; this edition is included in “The Effective Child & Family Programme”. It has two versions. Furthermore, we practice “Let’s Talk About Children” in Japan.
