Chosen by Josh Puleston and Plymouth Samaritans, Girl, Interrupted is a film which highlights how mental health issues can affect any of us. In 1967, after a session with a psychiatrist she'd never seen before, Susanna Kaysen was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and sent to a New England psychiatric hospital where she spent the next two years in a ward for teenage girls. Though Girl, Interrupted took place in the 1960s, Winona Ryder, who plays Susanna in the film said, "it could take place in any time and have the same emotional result. Anybody could end up in one of these places — you or me, or anybody that we know."
