Abstract

This paper describes the care arrangements made for children when their mothers are admitted to psychiatric hospital. It also describes at admission, and at 3 months follow-up, the views and opinions of mothers and carers with regard to the admission, its impact on the family, and the service received. It was found that children are predominantly cared for within their family when their mother is admitted to hospital, and that mothers and carers are concerned about the impact of the admission and its associated problems.
