    Default WWYD? Children of parents with mental health issues

    If you suspected that your DP was suffering from a mental health issue that he/she refused to acknowledge. Would you still want to have a family with your DP? Would you bring children into that relationship?

    It depends on the symptoms of the mental health issue

    I think it would really depend on the type of suspected mental health issues and also the severity.

    It would depend how/if they acknowledged a potential issue and were accepting of seeking assistance.

    That they refused to acknowledge? No, I wouldn't. Children bring extra stress, which could play havoc on the person's mental health, and may need extra support. If they don't acknowledge they have a problem to begin with, I don't imagine they would accept extra support.

    Probably not. Having kids is hard enough without having a partner that isn't 100% on board.
