Synopsis >

When Dr. Jack Gallagher (Chris Vance) - a dynamic, young, and radically unorthodox psychiatrist - is named Director of Mental Health Services at an LA hospital complex, he turns a medical institution on its ear. Everything changes as Gallagher's radical methods and ideology inflame the staff and upset the system as a whole. MENTAL is a medical-mystery drama that explores the complexities of the human mind as never before. Each week, confronted with a different patient's crisis - including unknown, misunderstood, and even misdiagnosed conditions - Gallagher must plunge very quickly inside the mind of his patient, not to instantly solve a complex psychiatric disorder, but long enough to gain true understanding of that patient, and to uncover what just might be the key to long-term recovery. Unfortunately, his colleagues remain resistant to his unorthodox, though highly effective, treatment methods. Some may do anything to make sure he won't be around too long. Don't miss these special uncut episodes too intense for TV.
