At New Hope Hospital, Psychiatrists pick and choose from an A-Z of Diagnosis. A new patient loses his name and gains a label: Anorexic, Bulimic, Catatonic, Depressed or Whatever. These vulnerable and fragile patients seek out help and a little TLC. They want to be listened to and understood. But there’s no time.

Nearing Christmas, Dominic’s head is crammed with voices. Lisa is in a daze and Nathan has the shakes. Rocking in unison, they hold onto themselves tightly because no one else will hold them. They are alonetogether.
Jason visits his schizophrenic wife in a secure ward. She’s on the floor, motionless, unreachable. With ‘Care in the Community’ he now provides 24-7 care. They are alonetogether. He sees no future. He wonders if anyone cares about the carer.
