Stacey's bi-polar storyline wins Mental Health Media Award
EastEnders News Team
"I am thrilled that EastEnders has won this award," Lacey Turner told us. "Playing the bi-polar storyline was one of the biggest achievements that I have had at EastEnders and I was honoured that I was entrusted with the task of portraying an issue that so many people are affected by. "
In a memorable episode late last year, Stacey was sectioned after her increasingly erratic behaviour.
"From the letters and feedback I have received, I am glad that EastEnders was brave enough to raise awareness of such a sensitive issue," Lacey added.
The Mental Health Media Awards celebrate the best portrayal of mental distress and reporting of mental health in broadcast media.
