BBC ONE - In The Mind Season HAS STARTED! *Link inside*

BBC Mental Health Page ^^^^^

Mental health is fast becoming one of the great issues of our time with growing numbers of people in the UK seeking help. BBC One will dedicate two weeks of the schedule to explore this important subject in closer detail across a range of programming from news and drama to documentaries and features.

Starting on Monday 15 February, the season will include stories of life and death, hope, scientific discovery and much more to help raise public awareness and understanding of issues relating to mental health.

BBC One’s In The Mind season will include the following content:

BBC News at Six and News at Ten - From 14th Febuary will broadcast a series of special reports on subjects including neuroscience, the NHS, ECT, lifesaving charities, changing social attitudes and mental health in the black community.

Inside Out on Monday 15 February - the ‘Inside Out’ regions will cover mental health issues with their own individual films as part of the season. Covering a range of subjects, including how vulnerable teenagers suffering from mental health problems are falling through the cracks between childhood and adulthood mental health services; investigating how A&E has become the new front line in dealing with people in mental health crisis; suicide rates, mental health support for transgender people; carers looking after family members in poor mental health; police and mental health services.

The Not So Secret Life Of The Manic Depressive: 10 Years On - BBC One, Monday 15 February, 9pm

Ten years ago, in an award-winning series, Stephen Fry first spoke about living with manic depression, and began a national conversation about mental health. A decade later, we return to the subject to understand where he and thousands of others diagnosed with bipolar (as it is now called) are now - as a society, do we need to do more for those with the illness? Is the treatment better? Has the stigma reduced?

My Baby, Psychosis Ane Me - BBC One, Tuesday 16 February at 10.45pm

reveals the frightening roller-coaster journey of two mums for whom childbirth triggers ‘Postpartum Psychosis’, one of the most severe forms of mental illness but from which there can be recovery with the right treatment.

Life After Suicide at 10.45pm on BBC One, Wednesday 17 February

Eleven years ago, Angela Samata was an ordinary mother of two living in Birkenhead. Then her partner Mark took his own life. In this film, Angela goes on a journey around Britain to meet others who've suffered a similar loss and explores why, when suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 in the UK, we are still so afraid of talking about it.

Professor Green: Suicide And Me will be repeated at 11.45pm on BBC One, Thursday 18 February

Male suicide has been called a silent epidemic, with the latest UK figures revealing that suicide accounts for nearly 5,000 male deaths a year, around four times that of suicide in women. In this thought-provoking documentary, UK rapper Professor Green takes an intensely personal journey to uncover the truth behind the suicide of his father - and why suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 in Britain.

In addition, there will be further mental health stories and items across a range of BBC programming, including: BBC Breakfast, Victoria Derbyshire, Newsbeat and BBC Radio 5 live. BBC online news will have a special report page dedicated to mental health.

OMg finally more coverage for mental health and a positive light to it i hope. No more believing its for lazy slobs, that choose to lay in bed all the time. Or people believing its for people that can't hack the real world/use it as life excuse. Personally anyone who chooses to be lazy/lay in bed no nothing and doss should never ever diagnosed with mental health problems.

Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.
I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside. I tried groups, didn't work out just made my depression a lot worse.

The problem is "mental health" experts have been massive failures. They made people worse over the years. With all the people trained in psychology etc there should be less problems and not more. There are many more because people have been reduced to mere chemicals.

Psychology area has become tainted with money, politics, wannbe rock star egomanics etc

Study delivers bleak verdict on validity of psychology experiment results

Of 100 studies published in top-ranking journals in 2008, 75% of social psychology experiments and half of cognitive studies failed the replication test

Particularly looking forward to the Stephen Fry documentary following on from the one he did years ago!

And Jack, you've kind of merged two issues. Cognitive psychological studies failing to be replicated isn't directly related to the area of psychiatry not always helping patients. Psychology is a huge area and its studies and experiments cover a lot of topics, and psychiatry is one sub-set/overlap.

And also you've made quite a big sweeping statement- where's the evidence for there being more problems now than before? And also, if that is true, a lot of it can be attributed to a reduction in stigma and an increase in awareness meaning more people are likely to seek help for mental illness than before which artificially inflates the numbers.

A lot of people I know personally have had their lives transformed by the mental health services and have made great steps in recovery. I think it's damaging to say that ALL mental health professionals make people worse and reduce them to chemicals. That isn't true.

Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back, everything is different…

you once called your brain a hard drive, well say hello to the virus.
