My Blue Box is a collection of projects, resources and information dedicated to children of parents with mental illness, as well as parents themselves. In addition, it is a tool for professionals who work with them. My Blue Box is also a window to Italy and Europe, on initiatives that support families in which a mother or father, or occasionally both, are experiencing a mental disease. My Blue Box is, above all, your "prevention tool", a compass that helps guide you through tough stretches.
