My story: How Libby beat anorexia

Determined 16-year-old Libby Devare is busy fundraising to pay for a month-long volunteering trip to help children affected by the Nepal earthquake.

Her face lights up as she talks of her excitement about the once-in-a-lifetime trip and her career plans in medicine. It’s a far cry from recent years, when keen musician Libby was ill with anorexia.

When to seek professional help

There is a difference between feeling a bit low from time to time and a serious emotional health problem. If your child is feeling unhappy and low for a prolonged period of time, it's time to seek more professional help.

Any professional working with children and young people should know what to do. For example, if you approach a teacher for help, the teacher might deal with the problem with the help of a school counsellor or welfare worker. 

What help is there?

Early help

If you’re worried, any professional working with children and young people should know what to do. For example, if you approach a teacher for help, the teacher might deal with the problem with the help of a school counsellor or welfare worker.

You can visit your GP or go online for information about emotional and mental health. There’s lots of information for parents, carers and children and young people on the YoungMinds website.
