As part of my work with Time To Change and Beat, I have delivered talks on both mental health and eating disorder awareness. The three aims of my talks are to engage, educate and encourage.
I engage my audience by telling my personal story of a mental illness, how I got through it and what recovery has both brought and taught me.
I educate them about the symptoms of eating disorders, how they can help a friend they suspect may be suffering from a mental health problem and also how they can look after their own mental health.
Finally, I encourage and invite my audience to talk about mental health more openly and to look out for those around them. Talking can really help someone who is suffering from a mental illness, and it is important that we don’t shy away from the issue.
