What services is provided from above mentioned working teams/authorities for families with mental illness?
We have in our study chose to limit ourselves to only consider our field from the professionals perspective. We interviewed seven professionals from social work in some municipalities in southern Sweden. The interviews have taken place in direct meetings.

There are children groups and support groups, where children can meet other children in similar situations. Conversational therapy is another effort. Social services can also bring in a support family. (Less)
