Maternal Mental Health and Poverty: The Impact on Children’s Educational Outcomes.

Ulf Hansson, Rebecca O’Shaughnessy, Marina Monteith

    Research output: Book/ReportScholarly editionpeer-review


    A range of factors can undermine maternal mental health, with short and long term consequences for mothers and their children. The relationship between poor parental mental health and children’s well‑being is increasingly documented, with the evidence suggesting adverse developmental outcomes across the domains of a child’s life. More specifically, maternal mental health, particularly when combined with socio‑economic disadvantage, has been recognised as a pivotal influence on children’s educational outcomes. This thematic report focuses on the relationship between poverty and maternal mental health, and the impact of these on children and young people’s educational experiences in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
