I am encouraging those who have experienced eating disorders to write a letter to their local MP, calling for more early intervention services to be made available.

Since my TV broadast story and the launch of my Fixers film, my campaign has received a lot of positive feedback!
Here is what some people had to say:
Emma: ‘Really proud and impressed to see your strength of character and dedication in pressing forward with this campaign, Kat. Both personal to your life and wide-reaching in the universal nature of how debilitating it is for sufferers to be met with responses such as those you've experienced, it takes a lot of courage to work to fix that response.’
Megan: ‘I am so proud of you and your strength, Kat. This is very inspirational and you inspire me and many others. Luckily for me, I got seen very quickly because my mum got the school counsellor phoning the hospital repeatedly. I got seen within 11 weeks. I would like to help out in any way possible with your campaign.’
Antonia: ‘Well done, Kat. This is so powerful. Praying that people start to listen and make changes.’
In July, I also wrote a blog entry for the Huffington Post, outlining why I feel better mental health services are necessary. Click the image below to read!
