When I was 15 years old I developed an eating disorder that changed my entire life...
“… I tried several methods to get out of it, but nothing worked.
When I started focusing on my self-esteem and self-confidence, it suddenly became different.
I began to dig into behavioral change and focused on linking this to strengthening the inner core.
Today I have a team behind me of CBT therapists and psychologists.
The goal is to strengthen young people who have or have had, some form of eating disorder
- to better self-esteem and confidence. "

Slow progress is still progress
Mental illness among young people is a major and growing problem, over 30 percent of girls and 16 percent of boys aged 15-25 feel mentally ill. Of the 1,800 suicides committed each year, the majority of them are committed by a person under the age of 25. The need for different methods to reduce mental illness among young people is huge. Many of the mental illnesses like Eating disorders and obsessive behaviors, can be attributed to a basically low self-confidence, poor self-esteem and poor self-image. We work for every youth to get the help they need and to support parents and their relatives. Our vision is to reduce the gap between primary care and specialist care. We strive to help young people to build up their self-esteem early and reduce the risk of young people developing an eating disorder.
