All this week, Channel 4 has been showing a collection of programmes about mental health, which they have called 4 Goes Mad.

The series included A little bit OCD, John Richardson's film about obsessive compulsive disorder and a documentary presented by Ruby Wax about mental health in the workplace.

The title, 4 Goes Mad, has split opinion in the mental health community, something Ilona Burton explored in her blog post for the Independent on Tuesday in which she concluded: "Either way, it certainly got people talking weeks before the first instalment was screened. The title - sexy or sadistic - worked."
