"Thank you for all you do"

About: Specialist services / Eating disorder service

(as a service user),

I just wanted to say a thank you to this service for the commitment and compassion they show on a daily basis to the people who they help.

I had previously attended day service and outpatient therapy with this service and made some good progress. I had begun to find eating more difficult recently due to a couple of different issues and I have begun using the information and sense of warmth and support I was given in day service and therapy to get back on track and continue working towards full recovery. I am reminding myself of all of the things I was told and it is really helping. I feel I have a number of resources I can turn to to help myself and I wouldn't have been able to do this before I used this service. I am grateful to have been through this service and to have had the experience of care I have had). This feels especially important when things are as challenging as they are in the world at the moment and I have less opportunity to use my usual coping strategies (I know it is challenging for many people not just people who have/had eating disorders).

The people and families who use this service are very fortunate to receive good, thoughtful care and I am sure that at the moment because of the demands on services overall they are probably having to work harder and in quite different ways. So I wanted to say thank you for all you do with that in mind.

Dear Runnigmy95,

Thank you so much for your kind words. It is so positive to hear that you are recognising that you need to think carefully about caring for yourself at this difficult time and that you are finding that you are able to draw on some of the guidance and input you have had from our team to help you with this.

Keep up the good work and look after yourself.

I will forward your feedback onto the team, who I know will really value the feedback.

Thank you,
