Example text

Socio-economic factors Being brought up and living in a position of economic disadvantage has a clear and negative impact on mental health throughout the life course. In one study of its impact on children, for example, Meltzer et al. (2000) found that 5- to 15-year-olds from low-income families were nearly three times more likely to experience some form of mental health problem than those from better-off families. Among the findings were some concerning statistics: one in 40 children in low-income households aged 5–10 years engaged in self-harming behaviour versus fewer than one in 100 from high-income households; and young men from low-income families are at twice the risk of suicide than those who are better off.

Wolke et al. (2012) highlighted the impact of both physical and social bullying. They found that children who were chronically physically bullied were around five times more likely to develop symptoms of borderline personality disorder than their peers. The risk for those who experienced both physical and social bullying such as exclusion from social groups was seven times greater. Cyber-bullying is now emerging as a significant problem, with both recipients and bullies appearing to be at greater risk of depression and suicide than those not involved (Bonanno and Hymel 2013).

However, again, these relationships disappeared after taking account of other social factors. Access to grandparents appears to be a beneficial or protective factor for all children, but especially those from one-parent households. Family conflict and divorce Divorce brings with it not just the stresses of single parenthood, but also risk of significant distress as a consequence of disrupted relationships and high levels of parental distress. However, although there is a modest association between short-term child maladjustment and 28 CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY divorce, a poor outcome is not inevitable.
