If you have a child or know a child who is coping with a parent who has a mental health issue, this book will help facilitate a conversation about their situation.
--- from the publisher
"Children of parents with serious mental illness are often not noticed by the mental health system. They are seen as bystanders, but they are directly affected by illness, never spared. We need to provide outreach to these children so they know they are not at fault, so their burdens are shared, so they receive the growing up they deserve. This book does it."
