Birmingham service launches FREED!

The Specialist Eating Disorder Service of Forward Thinking Birmingham held their FREED launch event on the 25th February, coinciding with Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2019. Forward Thinking Birmingham offer specialist eating disorder treatment right across Birmingham. Their service is specifically designed for young people up to age 25, which makes them a perfect fit with the FREED Network. We are delighted to have them on board.
