Interdisciplinary healthcare for children and adolescents (0-21 years) of parents with mental health and substance-abuse problems - children of mentally ill parents network - CHIMPS-net

[Sektorenübergreifende Versorgung für Kinder und Jugendliche (0 bis 21 Jahre) mit psychisch kranken und suchtkranken Eltern]

The CHIMPS-net project is a collaboration with Prof. Silke Wiegand-Grefe at the University Hospital in Hamburg. The project is funded by the German Joint Federal Committee (Gemeinsamer Bundesausschuss; G-BA). The overall goal of the project is to evaluate the implementation of a stepped-care and family-based approach to support families affected by mental health problems. Depending on the severity of the child's mental health problems, families will be offered a psycho-educative and psychodynamic intervention (CHIMPS) which varies in intensity (one-on-one treatment, group-based prevention, brief-intervention, online intervention).

The goal of our sub-study is to assess the predictors and moderators of two previously-evaluated interventions, “CHIMPS” and “GuG-Auf”, versus no intervention. The GuG-Auf is based on cognitive-behavioral components. For each intervention 50 families will be recruited and 100 families will be recruited in the control group (no intervention). Both interventions last four months and contain eight sessions. They take place in a group format.

All families will take part in a total of three outcome assessment sessions: 6 months, 12 months and 18 months after baseline. 

Recruitment for the study will begin in Summer 2020. If you are interested in participating in the study please contact belinda.platt@med.uni-muenchen.de
