Hope Virgo

For four years, Hope managed to keep a dark secret. But then, on 17th November 2007, her world changed when she was admitted to a mental health hospital. Her skin was yellowing, her heart was failing. Barely recognisable, she had to find the courage to beat her anorexia.

Hope is now a leading advocate for people with mental health issues. The author of Stand Tall Little Girl, a book about facing up to anorexia, she frequently works with schools and other organisations
