INTENSIVE CARE UNIT and POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER

Claudia Hammond visits Whiston Hospital in Prescot, Merseyside to meet research fellow Christina Jones who for the last ten years has been looking at the after effects of a stay in an intensive care unit.   Claudia also talks to Gillian Sexton, a former patient, about her experience and the importance of the intensive care diary filled in by staff and relatives.

Dr Raj Persaud discusses how patients should be dealt with in post-Intensive Care with the research leader, Richard Griffiths, Professor of Medicine at the University of Liverpool.


YOUNG CARERS

Caring for friends or relatives with mental health problems can be a difficult job at the best of times but even more so when the carers are children.  At any one time up to 17,000 young people will be looking after a parent who has a mental illness. 

When she was nine years old Kirsty started caring for her mother, who suffers from depression and panic attacks.  Kirsty recalls her life as a main carer and the lack of support she received.

Dr Raj Persaud talks to Jo Aldridge senior researcher and co-author of a study, by the Loughborough Child Carers Centre, of forty families and their health care professionals.


JEALOUSY

Jealousy is a powerful emotion and it is often activated by one of our worst fears – that someone we love is showing too much interest in another person. 

Dr Raj Persaud discovers how this emotion differs between the sexes when he talks to Dr Gary Brase, an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Sunderland.
