This documentary follows the lives of three teenage girls who have been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

These include Erin, a 16-year-old who is looking forward to be discharged but whose mother is worried about keeping her out of harm’s way; Jade, a 17-year-old hoping to be discharged before she turns 18; and Jess, another 17-year-old who has been sent to nine different hospitals across Britain, meaning her parents need to make a 300 mile long trip to see her every weekend.

Girls on the Edge is on BBC Two at 21.00.
