About this Event

Student Wellbeing Centre presents: ‘Anorexia and Me’ with Hope Virgo. This talk is part of the Student Wellbeing Centre's Body Positivity Month in October.

Hope is a mental health campaigner and author and an ambassador for the Shaw Mind Foundation.Hope suffered with anorexia for over 4 years, before being admitted to a Mental Health Hospital in 2007. She lived in the hospital for a year, fighting one of the hardest battles of her life. Since being discharged, she has fought to stay well.

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.

Hope will share her inspiring story of recovery and will provide an insight into mental health issues and what it is like living in recovery when at University. She will provide coping mechanisms, conversation starters and much more during this Student Wellbeing Presents talk.
