Here at mental Health – Time for Action we want to see an end to the postcode lottery of care in the treatment of eating disorders. We fully support the work of Dr Mark Berelowitz The Royal Free London whose aim is to keep young people in ‘adolescent life’ not ‘anorexic world’.

At our May Conference we heard from Mark Austin Journalist whose daughter Maddy suffered from an eating disorder. She was able to access treatment at home and within her local community. Both Mark and Maddy believe that being treated at home and receiving continuity of care was key to her making a full recovery.
We also heard from Tom Quinn Director of External Affairs at Beat (the UK Eating Disorder Charity).
