Mental health affects one in four of us, but how much do we really know about the relationship between mental health and our brains?
Driven by her passion for science and a personal family battle with depression, Charlotte Church is determined to literally get to grips with the human brain in this fact filled and illuminating brain journey.

Do antidepressants really work or could mental health be down to faulty workings in our brain? Could magic mushrooms offer a cure for severe depression? To answer these questions and more Charlotte meets those on the cutting-edge of brain science, visiting the UK's biggest brain bank to find out more about what is really going on inside our heads and explores how 'mini brains' grown in labs are enabling scientists to test new advances on living human brain tissue. In another lab Charlotte donates her own DNA to research exploring whether our genetics could hold the key to mental health.
