"The eating disorder clinic has saved my life"

About: Sligo/Leitrim Mental Health Services / Sligo Adult Community Mental Health Services

(as the patient),

I cannot thank Mary & Edel enough. I suffered for years from an eating disorder which I kept secret out of shame and honestly thought would be my cross to bear forever.

Mary & Edel helped me change my relationship with food and with myself.

The work they do is invaluable and saves many lives including mine. I will be forever grateful to them.
