Project Description

Sophia Badhan

Age 18, England – West Midlands

When I was 15, I was hospitalised for seven months due to anorexia nervosa.

In recovery, I began giving presentations and holding workshops at school to raise awareness of eating disorders and tackle the stigma against mental health problems.

Since then, I’ve overcome crippling anxiety to talk to a conference of 300 medical professionals, joined the Think 4 Brum Youthboard, and designed and delivered self-care workshops for Year 7 pupils at my school.
