Real talk

Our ‘real talk’ pages give YOU the opportunity to share your knowledge and experiences to help others, raise awareness, and to join the conversation about the issues and challenges that face those affected by eating disorders.

We review all blogs and stories submitted to us to ensure they don’t contain potentially triggering content. However, as these are personal reflections of experiences with eating disorders – and sometimes other mental health issues – posts may contain themes, topics, and descriptions that you may find difficult or upsetting to read. Please do put your own wellbeing first and if you are feeling vulnerable, scroll past, return another day, or access our support services.
