Greenlit: Inside A Teenage Mental Health Unit, BBC3

Inside a Teenage Mental Health Unit w/t (3 x 90′) – For a year cameras were given unparalled access to the McGuinness Unit in Manchester, one of the largest teenage mental health units in Britain. It’s the place of last resort for young people with psychosis or eating disorders, who self-harm or have OCD. We hear from the patients as these vulnerable teenagers try and turn their lives around, and from the staff who help them.
