In November 2016 Channel 4 ran a three-part series Kids on the Edge, produced by Century Films.

Each of the films concentrated on a different area of the Tavistock and Portman’s work with Young people: gender, Gloucester House, self-harm.

The Gender Clinic: This episode follows two families who attend the Tavistock’s Gender Identity Development Service: the only NHS-run gender identity clinic for children and young people with gender dysphoria.

Last Chance School: This episode meets three children at Gloucester House, the Tavistock and Portman’s unique NHS-run school for children with complex emotional, social and behavioural problems.

Troubled Girls: One in three UK teenage girls are now said to show symptoms of anxiety or depression. This episode meets two self-harming teenage girls, and shows the support they receive from Tavistock clinicians.
