Harrowing New Stacey Dooley Documentary Examines Life In A Psychiatric Hospital | TOTUM
Abigail MeadowFebruary 7th

The BBC will be airing a new documentary this month with our fave gal Stacey Dooley. She'll be spending three weeks working with patients and staff at a psychiatric hospital in London.

One in three people suffer from a mental health condition, with most having the first experience at a young age. The new documentary will see Stacey meet different patients battling their own mental health issues.

Stacey Dooley: On the Psych Ward will see her investigate the increasing pressure on our mental health services in the UK by spending time with teams at Springfield Hospitals in London.


She will also be spending time with mental health staff at The Lotus Assessment Suite, which provides a safe and calming space for patients, away from the rush of A&E.

This allows mental health staff to make detailed assessments on those who are experiencing a crisis and are in urgent need of support.

The presenter will speak to a whole host of experts, including Consultant Psychiatrist Dr Sean Whyte as well as ward manager, Sefanie Looker.


The documentary will be available on iPlayer from 6am on Wednesday, February 19th.

In the meantime you can get your Dooley fix right now, as one of her most recent documentaries landed last week.

Stacey Dooley Investigates: The Whale Hunters looks into the whaling industry which is still in practice in Demark's Faroe Islands, along with Norway, Iceland and Japan, despite being banned in many countries.
