"For the next six months, we need to raise £100,000 every month to ensure that we can keep the Helpline open for all the hours we need.
We can’t raise that money alone. But we can do it together."
The very first person I talked to about my eating disorder was the Beat Helpline advisor.
I was so nervous when I called, but they were so lovely, kind and patient.
It felt completely non-judgemental.
And it made me realise I wasn’t alone.
When I called Beat, I was crying and hysterical.
I didn’t know how to deal with the next moment. I felt so desperate.
The Helpline advisors listened and were so supportive.
The Beat Helpline became my safe place.
