OBJECTIVE: The home environment provided by the caregivers of a child is an influential single factor for development and wellbeing. We aimed to compare the quality of the home environment of children at familial high-risk of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder with population-based controls.

METHODS: Danish nationwide registers were used to retrieve a cohort of 522 7-year-old children of parents diagnosed with schizophrenia (N= 202), bipolar disorder (N = 120) or none of these diagnoses (N = 200). The home environment was assessed using the Middle Childhood-Home Observation for Measurement of the Environment Inventory (MC-HOME Inventory).

RESULTS: The proportion of children living in home environments that were evaluated not to meet the needs of a 7-year old child was significantly larger in the two familial high risk groups. This was true for 21% of the children with familial predisposition for schizophrenia and 7% of children with familial disposition for bipolar disorder.

CONCLUSION: Children born to parents diagnosed with schizophrenia and to a lesser extent bipolar disorder are at an increased risk of growing up in a home environment with an insufficient level of stimulation and support. Identifying families with inadequate home environments is a necessary step towards specialized help and support to at-risk families. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
