Diaries of a Broken Mind

Documentary in which 25 young people tell the story of growing up with mental health issues - from multiple personalities to agoraphobia, anorexia to bipolar - in their own words.

Bold, intimate and thought-provoking, this documentary explores what life is really like living with a mental health disorder. Using handheld cameras to film themselves over six months, 25 young people take us with them on a journey as they navigate the rocky road of growing up with mental health issues.

Told from their own unique perspective, they show us the everyday challenges of relationships, education, work and uncomprehending parents, along with the stigma they face along the way.

Highlighting a broad spectrum of mental health disorders - from multiple personalities to agoraphobia, anorexia to bipolar - this is their story in their own words.
