From the teacher's notes

"This programme is about a group of teenagers in an adolescent unit attached to a mental hospital. Before we filmed them, they criticised the title which we had suggested for the programme - 'Troubled Minds'. They argue that it gives the wrong impression about mental illness. And so they tell us in their own way just what their problems are. The young people themselves decided what should be filmed to illustrate their lives. - Scene teacher's notes autumn 1984 p.7.
