Looks at an alternative to the hospital treatment of people with psychiatric problems. Brindle House in Cheshire is a centre for out-patient treatment, allowing people to stay in the community. Patients are treated in an informal and friendly atmosphere — there are no white coats, no trolleys, and social workers outnumber nursing staff and patients. We see how several patients respond, including someone suffering from acute depression and a woman who has just had a stillbirth.
