Needs of child carers should be addressed

Children’s charity Barnardo’s has called for the
needs of children caring for parents with mental health problems to
be addressed, writes Helen

In a briefing published today, the charity said the role of
young carers needs greater recognition.

The report – Keeping the Family in Mind – also
recommends that providers of mental health care should record the
parental responsibilities of their clients in order that services
can better address the needs of the child.
