Will Stacey get the help that she needs?

Tamwar and Nancy are set to discover Stacey on the roof, when they hear the baby crying. They then rush to find Martin, who is keen to help his partner, and keep her struggles a secret.

He eventually manages to coax her down, after agreeing with her delusions that God is the baby’s father.

Once they’re back in the safety of the flat, Martin promises to help Stacey keep Arthur safe, however it’s soon clear that her psychosis is getting worse, and serious help is needed.

The storyline was announced shortly before Christmas, and the soap’s team have worked with the charities Mind and Action On Postpartum Psychosis.

Speaking to Huffington Post UK, Mind’s senior media advisor Jenni Regan explained: “We accompanied some of our supporters who have personal experience of postpartum psychosis to Albert Square to meet with the researchers, actors and writers.

"We have been involved with ongoing script consultation where the researchers send us different versions of the script and we feedback with comments and suggestions."

These scenes will air on Monday 11 January.
