Description

The Grace Dear Trust is back and this time the focus is around Eating Disorders. This is a free session for parents and carers who want to gain more knowledge and understanding around eating disorders.

Hope Virgo is a mental health campaigner and author, Hope was suffering with anorexia from the age of 13. Hope is now at the stage of 'ongoing recovery' and wants to use her experiences of mental health illness to champion the rights of others, inspire them to get well, and help break the stigma of mental illness.

“Eating disorder awareness, needs a skilled and delicate touch. Conveying the devastating impact of these illnesses whilst not triggering or leaving the audience feeling helpless is key and Hope Virgo is able to do this with passion. I don’t think it’s any coincidence she’s called ‘Hope’ - that’s the feeling you take away from her presentations".
