As I was browsing Twitter during lockdown I happened upon an appeal from Beat for funds to support their Helpline. It hit me right in the heart because I've used the Helpline before when I was really struggling with my own eating disorder. The person who spoke to me was so kind and helpful. Without doubt they helped me on my road to recovery. I know how hard lockdown has been on my own mental health and to lose a resource like this would be devastating for people who are struggling.

I created a JustGiving page to share on social media and with friends and family. I was contacted by Beat and offered support and some really great graphics to share on my page. I was so overwhelmed with the support I received, especially as I know how tough things are financially for people at the moment.
