EDHIT Launch - with author Katie Green
This event, a celebration of the birth of the new Eating Disorders Health Integration Team (EDHIT), will feature author Katie Green giving a talk about her work - in particular her book 'Lighter Than My Shadow', a graphic memoir of eating disorders, abuse and recovery - plus creative work produced by local people who are or have experienced an Eating Disorder.
There will also be the chance to hear about some of the projects EDHIT is working on, and opportunities to share ideas and experiences with each other. We welcome people voicing their own thoughts and ideas, and will be making a note of contact details and of themes that come up (with permission).
Our launch is one of many events taking place in the Bristol Freedom of Mind Festival.
