"We got our daughter back"

About: Sligo Adult Community Mental Health Services

(as a parent/guardian),

My daughter has various issues,  such as autism, partial blindness, and has been morbidly obese.

She started attending the eating disorder clinician Sligo, when she was at a particularly low state nearly two years ago.

Due to the kindness, understanding support and guidance given by Mary, she lost nearly 50lbs, became fitter and happier, we got our daughter back. 

She improved to such a steady state she was able to be discharged.

Since then due to external circumstances out of her control, she started to spiral down, Mary’s response has been immediate and encouraging giving my daughter once again encouragement to pick herself up and regain her confidence and ability to cope with life.
