This chapter deals with family health and the role of health services in family lives, particularly where there is a disability or ongoing health problem. It notes that the most dominant health issue may be mental health, depression and anxiety, sometimes linked to area conditions but also linked to struggles of everyday family life on low-incomes in those poor conditions. It explores the health of the 200 families surveyed here, and investigates their experiences of local health services.

Keywords:   family health, health services, family lives, mental health, depression, anxiety, area conditions, low-incomes
