Switched On review of Changing Minds


Joel, 18, has a problem. "This may sound crazy, but I can speak to spirits and that," he tells Dr Mark Cross. The shrink is ready for him. "Look, I'm a psychiatrist, I can cope with crazy."

Joel is in society's most at-risk group for mental illness, 17-24, one of the patients at Campbelltown Hospital's Mental Health Unit who have agreed to be filmed for the second season of this riveting series. Dr Cross and team can help in different ways, starting with the simple stuff. Joel, who lives in a bush cave, needs a pair of shoes.
