    Thank you so much for this video, so succinct, articulate and as a mum with a 20 year old daughter who has been struggling with an eating disorder and depression for 4 years so relatable!
    I hope your daughter is recovering, it’s such a hard journey for the whole family and fighting the system to get essential and life saving care is frustrating and exhausting.
    You are an amazing mum and thank you for sharing your sadly all too familiar experiences.
    Sending love x
