Motivation/ Inspiration/ Mission

Coming from Northern Ireland eating disorders services are in the infancy, with no dedicated units for this mental health problem. I wanted to get involved in research to have a better understanding of the why’s that could help us engage in early intervention and stop people getting to a place where they need inpatient care. This has and continues to motivate my work and passion in this area.
