A regular patient to King's who suffers from schizophrenia is admitted after failing to take his diabetes medicine: it's his 19th visit in a year. Meanwhile a young girl seeks refuge with the mental health team. She's in crisis and struggling to cope with life. Psychiatric nurse Jenny has seen it all and reveals that the patients her team have to deal with are getting younger and younger. One patient with suicidal thoughts was just seven. Joseph, a 16-year-old schoolboy, is rushed to A&E after suffering a suspected stroke, and is joined at his bedside by his twin brother Elijah and their mother as they await the results of a brain scan. Clive, 61, a former betting shop manager, is also suspected of having a stroke. Known as the 'Memory Man' in his youth, he is now coming to terms with his diminishing mental abilities, but it may just be his anti-depressants, coupled with the years of alcoholism that are his real problem.
