COPMI Project

In 1999, the Australian Infant, Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Health Association Ltd (AICAFMHA) undertook a national scoping project to identify the services available and future plans for services for children of parents with a mental illness. In March 2001, the AICAFMHA Scoping Project on Children of Parents with a Mental Illness was launched by the Minister for Health. In response to this report, the Commonwealth government allocated funding for a three year national initiative to develop guidelines and principles for services and workers, and complementary resource materials for services/workers, parents and young people. A further phase of the project was funded in 2004./p>
