Children of parents with psychological or addiction problems

Children of parents with psychological or addiction problems are vulnerable but often invisible. The Trimbos Institute offers guidance on how to identify these children, how to offer them and their families needed support and services, and how to reduce future risks with these populations.

A website with information for parents is also available; more information in Dutch can be found here. In addition, Trimbos organizes the National Conference on Children of Parents with Psychological or Addiction Problems twice a year. This conference informs healthcare professionals about new ways of caring for these populations, presents new research findings, and promotes knowledge exchange between professionals, caregivers, and policymakers.
