Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag av avhandlingen: 

Many adult mental health and social service users have minor children. Children are affected by their parents’ situation, whether it involves mental illness, low income or work disabilities. Therefore, mental health and social services for adults need to consider the situation of any minor children and provide support for them. This PhD project investigates the extent and the quality of the family focus in adult mental health and social services. The main findings suggest that children and parenting is not an incorporated focus among professionals in mental health and social services for adults. The extent and the quality of the family focus in these adult services is insufficient to enable prevention of adverse life outcomes for children and to enable direction of further support of families.
