    I am in the unfortunate situation of trying to coparent with an ex husband who has had no contact with my child since birth.
    Now he wants contact but he has undiagnosed mental health issues. A lot of which I find out about through a third party family member but which he has never told me about. I know not whether he is lucid, stable , a risk or whether it’s just severe depression. What should I do?
    He doesn’t know my child so how am I meant to get him to form the relationship but also ensure that I get any information I’m entitled to for my son’s sake.?

    thanks in advance

    Hi how old is your child? If your child is young the best way forward is to start off with supervised contact . If you get on with ex partner you could supervise say for example 4 sessions yourself. Its best not to listen too much to 3rd parties and by having supervised you will have chance to have your fears put at ease.

    During this current pandemic who hasnt got depression and anxiety . If your son is over 4 their are other options available as well
