Mental heath season on BBC Three

Just a heads up that the following programmes are going to be broadcast on BBC Three in the spring:

In Rachel Bruno: Me And My Dad, the daughter of boxing legend Frank, who has bipolar disorder, sets out to discover the truth about her dad's illness. Through talking to Frank about his condition and spending time with others who have it, Rachel will explore this potentially devastating illness that affects about 1 in 100 people. Ultimately, she'll discover whether she herself is at risk of developing it too.

Other shows in the season include:
• OCD Camp, a 2-part documentary following 6 British teens and young adults living with OCD as they embark on a life changing week-long treatment course in the USA
• Mental Me will explain the science behind the most common mental illnesses that affect young people – why they develop in the first place, what’s going on inside our bodies and what we can do to treat them. The documentary will bring together personal stories of mental illness, scientific information and dramatic CGI to explore the causes, and dispel the most common myths, about mental illness
• Minds Like Ours is a documentary where 20 young people with mental health disorders use handheld cameras to show what life is really like living with a mental health disorder – from schizophrenia to bipolar, OCD to personality disorders
• Inside A Teenage Mental Health Unit is a 3-part serious where cameras were given access to the McGuinness Unit in Manchester, one of the largest teenage mental health units in Britain, for a year
• Football, Schizophrenia And Me will tell the story of a football league in which every player suffers from a mental health problem. Following a number of key characters over one season, the film, it is hoped, will challenge the way mental health disorders in young men are perceived.

In addition, BBC Learning will produce new online resources on mental health issues as well as creating content for use in the classroom.

Zai Bennett, controller of BBC Three, said: “Our mantra of never afraid to try to new things will continue into 2013 and this raft of new commissions shows our commitment to bold, thought-provoking programmes for 16-34s.”

I thought that too. Whenever they tackle mental health problems on TV or radio it's like if you're over the age of 25 you don't exist or you're not worth helping. That's quite a prevalent attitude these days I think, and not just in the media. Thanks for the info though Sherlock.



And the illusion of love is the only promise of defence, and even that will crumble.

Most of the stuff the bbc has done so far that i have watched has not been very good or informative at all, so will see if its gotten any better.

I'll have to find out when they're on. They look very interesting.

I'm not over 25 but I have also noticed that once you're post-25, you seem to be generally written off and I think that that's something that definitely needs looking into and focussing upon.

Hmm I dont know. These sound like they focus on over 25s but the mental health season on channel 4 last year focussed quite a bit on over 25s. I am not a huge fan of the way channel 4 approached it at all but they did use a variety of ages.

I guess maybe its because it is common for mental illness to strike when one is younger (in their teens/early 20s) so perhaps they are focussing on the onset?
