Britain's Mental Health Crisis

We go inside one of the UK's largest frontline mental health trusts. With funding cuts drastically reducing bed numbers, we follow the teams through their daily decision making of who to let in and who send home. We film with the nurses as they deal with the suicidal, aggressive and the isolated in the community and hear how the system is so overloaded and other support services so decimated that staff feel they often struggle to meet all their patients' needs.
