Molly (15) knew her relationship with food was dominating her every thought, but thought it was normal. The day Maria from Eating Distress North East came into school to deliver a talk on eating disorders changed Molly’s view and life forever. The talk helped Molly understand that she in fact had an eating disorder, which was controlling her and draining any sign of happiness from her life.
Molly approached a teacher after the talk and asked them to contact her Parents as she knew she was suffering from an eating disorder. On arriving at the School Molly’s parents admitted they knew there was a problem but did not know how to start the conversation. They expressed their gratitude and felt the talk had started the conversation they were struggling to have. They took Molly straight to their GP who referred her for specialist help.
One year on and Molly has made a full recovery and is due to start college to begin her training as a Mental Health Nurse. Molly knows that she needed help to recover and now wants to help others in their recovery,

As a small charity, we rely on the amazing generosity of the public to allow us to continue our work. Every donation is noticed and appreciated, and allows us to really make a difference in someone’s life – by helping to provide specialised one to one counselling sessions to people who would otherwise not be able to access them, run our support groups, and provide training so people can spot the signs of eating distress and help others seek the support they need as early as possible. We use Local Giving as our donation platform, and any contribution enables us to continue providing our supportive services for people struggling with anxiety around food
