Incontinence and bed wetting amongst Teens - Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies

Posted Jul 21 2008 10:15am

The makers of Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies contacted us this morning. Following the success of the series ‘Embarrassing Bodies’ in April, they have now been commissioned to make 4 prime-time specials focusing on teenagers which will be broadcast across a week in a high profile health season on Channel 4. Each of these one hour specials will focus on a theme and is designed to both educate and entertain through informative awareness campaigns and character-led stories focusing on individual patients with related conditions.

They are keen to talk to as many teenagers as possible for research and also with a view to them potentially taking part. They are especially keen to explore bed wetting in teens as they are aware that this is extremely common and if not treated early this may cause further problems in adult life. They are particularly interested in brave teens that would be willing to act as a case study to help educate others who may live with a similar condition.

If you have a child between the ages of 13-19 and you are worried about their health they would like to hear from you. In fact if you or your child is anxious about any medical problem and want to find out more then they are keen for you to get in touch! The team can be contacted via email at s.carty@mavericktv.co.uk or by telephone on 0207 874 6672.

If selected, your child’s condition will be treated by professionals and you will receive top quality surgery (if appropriate) and treatment. Your involvement will raise awareness about your child’s condition, helping others experiencing the same issues to seek the treatment they need.
