Social media – a help or hinderance to recovery?
Cara will be exploring how social media is used by people experiencing eating disorders, the pros and cons of accessing various content, what impact it has and how carers and services can support people to use social media in a safe and meaningful way.
Cara is a registered mental health nurse with lived experience of anorexia. She runs a successful blog about her recovery and is the author of the upcoming book “The Eating Disorder Recovery Journal”.
She is an active mental health campaigner across social media, specifically focusing on raising awareness of eating disorders.
