I watch this last night online and really enjoyed it though very sad to see Stephen often feels so bad about himself.

I watched history of the madhouse



........depressing



BUT it did well at showing how life was back then, and we are lucky nowadays. I too don't like the term "service users" lets change it to patient!

Really enjoyed watching this the other night. I found it interesting to see that even a GP (previously a consultant) isn't immune to this illness.
