Child Abuse

Parents with mental illness and child abuse

What is your take on the correlation of the risk of children being abused by parents with a mental illness? 

What measures can be implemented to prevent abuse from occurring, or to protect a child that is currently abused?

Do you have any personal experiences that you would like to share regarding this topic?

Please only comment to the topic above. NO ADVERTISEMENTS PLEASE!

According to a new study, a history of child abuse significantly impacts the wide range of challenges facing depressed parents/caregivers.

The increased psychiatric risk for children of mentally ill parents is due partly to genetic influences and partly to an impairment of the parent-child interaction because of the parent’s illness. Furthermore, adverse factors are more frequent in these families, as well as a higher risk for child abuse.

Such a valuable topic it is! Actually lots of parents have those who are not aware about child abuse issues because they have not enough knowledge about this topic and how this child abuse can impact on their child's mental health. So I think whatever has been discussed in here that's all are very informative and definitely parents will be aware of this very seriously for reducing child abuse. Thanks a lot:)
