Jeremy Kyle Show and Mental Health

Junes Letter in the Times

Sir, How appropriate that during mental health awareness week Jeremy Kyle’s programme has been axed. Why did it take the death of a participant for a responsible television provider such as ITV to stop the exploitation of obviously “vulnerable” individuals, many of whom almost certainly suffered from mental health issues, from being placed at risk of harm? Instead of supporting reality programmes such as The Jeremy Kyle Show, ITV ought to support an annual fundraising programme, akin to Children in Need, entitled “Mental Health in Need”. Anyone experiencing poor mental health, whether professionally or personally, knows very well how under-resourced it remains. Such a programme could provide the support that is missing.
