The BBC has been welcomed to the Trust’s CAMHS base in Bedford as part of a project to educate young people about the risks of some ‘celebrity detox diets’.

A film crew spent three hours at Rush Court with Sarah Fuller, an Advanced Specialist Eating Disorders Dietitian.

Sarah, who is also a clinical advisor with national Eating Disorders charity BEAT, was filmed as she discussed potential risks that can be associated with some diets, supplements and detox teas which are popular with teenagers.

Sarah’s interview will be broadcast on BBC digital and social media channels early in 2019.

“The BBC crew were fantastic and I am grateful for the opportunity to help share information about how young people can eat healthily and safely,” she said.

“The visit also gave me the chance to shout about some of the brilliant work going on within our CAMHS services. They were really impressed, so hopefully there will be a return visit at some stage!”
