The research aim was to review and present evidence that could inform the practice guidelines, to identify gaps in knowledge, and to evaluate the strength of the existing evidence, both in general and specifically in relation to marginalised families and those from black and minority ethnic communities.
Two separate questions were addressed by the review reported here and reviewed separately:
* Question one: What is known about the incidence, prevalence, and types of parental mental health problems in the UK?
* Question two: What systems, tools and opportunities exist in children's services, adults' services and family services for detecting parental mental health problems, in both the UK and elsewhere? How these are used, by whom and in which contexts?
