Eating Disorders Awareness

Eating Disorders Awareness Week Logo

It’s important to raise awareness for every aspect of mental health, not just depression and anxiety, so we are hosting an Eating Disorders Awareness Week!  With great advocates such as Hope Virgo, Elle Rose and more, we’re ready to take Eating Disorder Awareness to a whole new level!

Here’s what’s coming your way:

The Guests

Hope Virgo

Hope is an author, mental health campaigner and an ambassador for the Shaw Mind Foundation.  Author of Stand Tall Little Girl, she suffered with anorexia for over 4 years before being admitted to hospital in 2007.  Now in ongoing recovery, she uses her experience to raise awareness for mental health and eating disorders and to inspire people to get well and break the stigma that surrounds mental health.  Why not check out some of her work?

Elle RoseElle Rose

YouTuber Elle Rose lives with bipolar disorder, PTSD and an on-again/off-again eating disorder.  She vlogs about her life coping with mental illness and has featured some of our content before.  When she’s not vlogging, she enjoys both reading and writing horror stories and hopes to publish a book someday.  In addition to that, she’s an artist and a technician.  For our Eating Disorder Awareness Week, she’s come onboard to bring us a video about eating disorders.  You’ll want to stick around for this!

 

Hannah Brown

As a blogger and campaigner on mental health issues, Hannah has used her experience of suffering from Anorexia to help support others through the founding of her, own recovery peer support service- aneartohear.co.uk, working as a voluntarily organisation. Now, working closely with NHS providers, other professionals in the field together with schools, corporations and MP’s-she continues to help others by increasing the dialogue around eating disorders and encouraging those to speak out, reaching for help that she knows they not only need but most importantly deserve.
