Hope’s favourite places to go for Support: 
  1. The Hub of Hope (and not just because it has my name!) – it provides a quick way to pull up a list of services in your area. It also has a crisis text message scheme just in case you need someone to talk to
  2. Student Space: Set up by Student Minds has a place for finding support, a place to reach out for support, and blogs to read
  3. The Mix: One of the best sites I have come across! It offers online support, as well as a heap of information. It is mainly for under 25 year olds but there is a lot of great stuff on there!
Eating Disorder Help 
  1. BEAT: BEAT: Helpline: 0808 801 0677 Student line: 0808 801 0811 Youth line: 0808 801 0711 – BEAT provides online support and phone support 
  2. Anorexia Bulimia Care: another amazing safe place for you to go. And if you are over 18 they also offer a be-friending scheme 
  3. First Steps ED: A fantastic charity that focuses massively on early intervention, giving you a space to come and speak out up.  
  4. NEDA  : (US Based) – this organization has some brilliant blogs as well as a crisis text messenger service and helpline  

Support for Families / Carers  

  1. FEAST is for parents and carers of those struggling. But again a really valuable space to go for support and to read blogs
  2. YoungMinds: Parent helpline 08088025544 
University support 
  1. Student Minds: A huge hub of knowledge – have a look at their blogs and their support sections

Here is a brand new sponsor, Momentous and I’m excited to start this relationship with them. This week I want to highlight Momentous collagen. Use Momentous Collagen Peptides daily for long-term joint health, resilience against injury, and faster return to running. The most popular ways to use are in a smoothie or with your morning coffee! It mixes in super easily and is totally unflavored. Most products claim to be “unflavored” but still carry a strong scent of their source, be it bovine-hide or marine collagen. Ew.

 Go here and use code TINA for 20% off.

The founders, Pernell & Rod, created BLK & Bold with a desire to make purpose popular. They welcome the obligation to equip young people with tools to live their best lives and overcome familiar unfortunate circumstances by turning a daily ritual, enjoying a cup of coffee & tea, into a means of giving back. BLK & Bold pledges 5% of its profits to initiatives aligned to sustaining youth programming, enhancing workforce development, and eradicating youth homelessness.
