Anxiety & Depression

Severe anxiety is usually misunderstood. Senior and experienced staff know that it can be a challenging condition to manage and there may be pitfalls along the way. In this programme, you too will see why.

Unique to video is the ability to show change over time.
Here, we follow the progress of two patients with severe anxiety symptoms over a period of fifteen years.

First, we see them in extreme distress and they describe their disabling symptoms. Later on, we hear more about the causes and are given a better understanding of their problems. Both had difficulties with medication misuse and we discover why this happened.

They share with us what was important for them in treatment and what really helped them to get better.

Both talk about the importance of staff attitudes and approaches.
Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Flavia Leslie, provides us with a straightforward commentary complimenting the narrative of the two patients.

This is an extra programme attached to ‘Extreme Anxiety – Winning the Battle’. It is a series of interviews with people who suffer extreme anxiety.

This programme contains interviews with Psychiatrists, as well as people who have suffered from depression. These revealing and, at times, harrowing interviews give a real insight into the nature of depression.

The symptoms are discussed, as well as treatment options. These include in-patient care, medication and psychotherapy.

An essential teaching aid for medical students, junior medical staff and other professionals new to the field of mental health.

A practical guide to the management of this very common problem. Employers have a duty of care to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees. They are also required to conduct risk assessments for work-related stress. But in reality, how many do?

Stress causes 40% of all work-related illnesses and one in five visits to a GP. It is the single biggest cause of sickness in the UK.
