FILM: When a parent has a mental illness...

The film is aimed at young carers themselves. Young carers talk about their lives caring for a parent with mental illness. Narrated by Chineye, a young carer herself, the film also explains in a very simple and visual way how the brain works and what happens when things go wrong.

If you have problems viewing the film on full screen, please right click on your mouse and go to view full screen.

 

 

This film was produced by Dr Alan Cooklin with funds from the Royal College of Psychiatrists' Images of Psychiatry Campaign.
