My Troubled Mind is a 6 part series for BBC Teach. Through real testimony, this series explores teenage mental health. It will act as a springboard for discussions on mental ill-health in PSHE lessons in secondary school - a topic that is still widely misunderstood and unrecognised. It covers a variety of topics, from self harm, eating disorders, anxiety, depression and addiction.
We hope to raise awareness and understanding of mental health in young people. We also hope that it can act as a beacon of hope for the young people who might be going through similar problems. These films are part of a Mosaic’s tradition of making award-winning animated documentaries about important psychological and social issues created by Mosaic’s CEO, Andy Glynne.
With thanks to: Jack, India, Chloe, Eleanor, Ryan, Sam and Aneekah for their contributions and to all the other young people we interviewed. Thanks to Dr. Annie Waring, and Jan Lever for their essential involvement. Thanks to Eva Palacios for helping bring the team together! To all the charities, organisations and CAMHS centres who helped find the participants, shape and guide this content. To all the team at Soho Square Studios for their wonderful support.
