    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!

    You are an amazing mum and thank you for sharing your sadly all too familiar experiences.
    Sending love x
