The McGuinness Unit in Manchester is one of the largest teenage mental health inpatient units in the country – and a place of last resort for many adolescents with eating disorders or psychosis, who self-harm or are suicidal.
Filmed over the course of a year, this series follows teenage girls and boys at the unit as they work to get better. This series offers a chance for young patients to tell us what it’s really like to live with mental health issues - through the good times and the bad - and dispel the myths, preconceptions and taboos of mental illness.
Don’t Call Me Crazy launches a season of films on BBC Three looking at a range of mental health issues affecting young people in Britain today, from schizophrenia, OCD, eating disorders and self-harming to dealing with family members affected by mental illness.
The first episode of the three-part documentary airs on 24th June on BBCThree at 9pm. Follow the series on the BBC home page.
