When a parent has a mental illness

Aimed at young carers, in this film, young carers talk about their lives looking after a parent with mental illness. Narrated by Chineye, a young carer, the film also explains in a very simple and visual way how the brain works, and what happens when things go wrong.

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

 

Tulisa: My Mum and me

Tulisa Contostavlos is best known for being the girl in the pop band N-Dubz, but she is also a carer for her mum who has suffered from a mental illness since before Tulisa was born. In this personal, authored documentary first broadcast on BBC3 in 2010, Tulisa finds out what life is like for some of the 80,000 other young people in Britain caring for a parent with mental health problems.
