‘Psyched!’ is an 8 episode medical drama on mental health topics. This will be an accurate portrayal of people with mental health problems based on my experience of working as a psychiatrist for 10 years in the NHS UK. The series will follow a Mental Health Community Team, looking at the individual experiences of the staff and the patients they work with. This will include a junior doctor going through training and psychiatry exams, a consultant psychiatrist and her chaotic love life contrasting the organised and logical decisions she makes at work, nurses, social workers, psychologist and trainees.
In the pilot, we meet 3 of the patients, during a Mental Health Act assessment, a hospital review and a home visit.
