A HEALTH trust has taken part in a BBC documentary showing the experience of two families having therapy.
Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, which provides mental health and social care for Bromley, Bexley and Greenwich residents, has featured in the documentary, I Hate Mum, to be shown next Tuesday.
The Greenwich family therapy team from child and adolescent mental health services and the families agreed to be filmed as they go through months of therapy to rebuild parent-and-child relationships.
The documentary focuses on 10-year-old Adam and his mother Sharon and 16-year-old Ryan and his mother Cathy. It is being shown on BBC 1 at 10.35pm.
Family therapist Pete Brown was the key contact between Oxleas and ZKK, the company commissioned to make the film.
He said: "One of my aims was to show family therapy in a positive light to families who feel stuck in terms of communication and relationships and help them to move forward.
"I hope the film will show some of the important work we do.
