When a parent has a mental illness
When a parent has a mental illnessYoung carers talk about looking after parents who have mental illness. Did you know that 1 in 12 children has a parent with a mental illness? In this short film, young carers talk about their lives caring for a parent with mental illness. Narrated by Chineye, a young carer herself, the film also explains in a very simple and visual way how the brain works and what happens when things go wrong. This film was produced by family psychiatrist Dr Alan Cooklin, with funds from the Royal College of Psychiatrists' Images of Psychiatry Campaign.
