GEORGIE Wakefield has had the spectre of mental illness around her family for many years.
Georgie Wakefield and her family took part in a 50 minute BBC 2 documentary My Family: Loving Christian which gave a service user/carer perspective on “family life” and day-to-day activities and was broadcast in October 2005.

YT spoke to Georgie to get a better idea about the issues involved.
