Abstract:

"More than half a million of Canada's frontline mental healthcare "workers" are less than twelve years old. They're called COPMI - Children Of a Parent with Mental Illness - and there are 575,000 of them in Canada. I Am Still Your Child, a documentary film by Megan Durnford, explores the point of view of growing up with a mentally ill parent through the intimate and touching stories of Sarah, Jessy and Von, but their experiences speak to a much wider issue. We've gathered other firsthand stories here in addition to in-depth information and resources about the subject. Children who grow up with a parent who has mental health difficulties are at risk for a host of grave repercussions, among which a much higher risk of developing mental illness themselves and reproducing a potentially toxic pattern. These children are vulnerable to life-long disability and yet they are virtually invisible to our healthcare system"--Website
