I joined Dorset Mind as I feel really passionate about raising awareness regarding mental health, as it is something that has affected me in the past and people close to me. As a law student, I understand it is easy to get overwhelmed and stressed, and so I hope to ensure everyone knows they can always reach out when it gets too much. I want to make a difference and truly help young people to access mental health help that can improve their lives.
Megan Whitehead is an ambassador at Dorset Mind. I wanted to do my bit to help others and when this opportunity came up, I knew it was right for me!
My name is Craig Eldridge, I moved to Dorset in 2014. Between the years of 20017 and 2010 I had an eating disorder. I was scared that food would make me ill, so I tried to avoid it anyway I could. Over the years I had highs and lows of getting over it. Today I’m in a really good place, I have my mental health under control. I know what triggers me, what I can do to prevent these triggers, but also ways to deal with them if they ever happen. Its been a long and tough journey, but I’m glad I stuck with it every day.
