I read in the Guardian on Monday yet another shocking headline: “UK students waiting up to three months for mental health care”. If you read my articles regularly you will know that I am passionate about mental health. These articles have the focus of parenting, but in my opinion when any member of the family suffers a mental ill health that requires support, all the family members suffer. We, as families are a unit, a mini organisation just like the workplace. One member of a family in distress, natural impacts on all members of the family.
