Abstract

Young people of parents with a mental illness are at significant risk of developing a mental illness. This risk may be reduced if appropriate interventions are provided. While there are several supports available, their needs are rarely heard in either intervention development or evaluation. This study presents young people’s perspectives of the types of supports they want. One hundred and seventy-two young people (13–17 years) whose parent has a mental illness completed a self-constructed questionnaire and six of these participants engaged in individual follow-up interviews. Frequency data indicated that youth want to learn how to cope or manage their parent’s mental illness and highlighted a need to access support online. Interview thematic analysis reflected a need for psycho-education, confidential and/or anonymous support, and a preference to access information from health care professionals. Given the diversity of views presented, this study suggests that “not one size fits all”.
