Growing up in Scotland: maternal mental health and its impact on child behaviour and development

Longitudinal surveys afford a unique opportunity to study change over time for the same individuals and to explore the impact of prior circumstances on long-term outcomes.

Using longitudinal data over four sweeps of the Growing Up in Scotland (GUS) study, this report explores the impacts of poor maternal mental health on children’s emotional, cognitive and behavioural development and on their relationships with peers at ages three to four.
