STACEY Dooley left fans heart-pounding with the scene of the damaging corona virus in her documentary Back on the Psych Ward.
The 34-year-old host returned to Springfield Hospital in her latest BBC Two documentary, which was first filmed there last year.
Stacey wanted to investigate the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on people with mental health conditions, and met with a number of patients and staff who shared their stories.
These included Coral, who was brought in after trying to end her life after a constant battle with anxiety and depression, who attempted to treat herself with alcohol.
Another, 21-year-old Ali, has a serious obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
Their stories hurt viewers and full of praise for Stacey for highlighting such an important issue in such an unprecedented time.
On Twitter, one viewer wrote: “It’s sad to see #staceydooley BBC2 #backonthepsychward all young people cannot see their own potential.
“Mental health is under-provided, they deserve much better.”
Another tweeted: “What a sober and profound observation of Covid-19’s impact on young people and serious mental illness.
“Mental health services are in short supply and need investment, they deserve a better #backonthepsychward.”
