Anne Mace, Chair of our Board of Trustees and former Chief Probation Officer with West Yorkshire, has been a member of international Advisory Board for the three-year, EU-funded project 'Children of prisoners, interventions and mitigations to strengthen mental health' -- the COPING Project. This project studied children with an imprisoned parent to understand their emotional needs and vulnerabilities to mental health problems. The study suggests that children with a parent in prison may be up to 2½ times more likely than other children to experience mental health problems, however many young people are neglected by the system and suffer social stigma and other social disadvantages. Here Anne Mace talks about the need for such projects and how the COPING Project compliments the work of the Together Women Project in Yorkshire and Humberside.
