This chapter examines the service configurations of the main agencies delivering services to mothers with mental health needs and their children and discusses recent organizational developments in order to establish the extent to which these services are equipped to respond to the needs of such families. It outlines the policy in which mental health professionals and child care workers deliver services. It also examines the role of voluntary organisations in providing services for mothers with mental health needs as this sector has been the source of some innovative projects.
