In honour of all of those living with and who have lost the battle with Eating Disorders, we will be hosting a fabulous night of black tie amazement!

Eating Disorders have the highest mortality rate rate amongst all Mental Illness and the stigma surrounding Eating Disorders is still very prominent.

Fighting the Mind was established in February 2018, by Tori, from her daughter's (Laura) hospital bedside.
Laura was at risk of heart failure, with Anorexia almost taking her life on Friday 17th February 2018.

Funds raised from the Charity Ball will be spent on opening up an Eating Disorder Recovery Clinic (One at first) locally.
We are going to be focusing on holistic recovery care including: Specialised ED Yoga Classes, Art Therapy, Animal Therapy, Peer Support Sessions, Counselling, Mindfulness, Support Groups and much more.
We aim to have more of these much needed clinics up and running throughout NZ over the next 24 months.
These clinics are designed to meet the needs of Families/ Whanau supporting those living with Eating Disorders and also those living with Eating Disorders.
It will a safe and confidential space for people to come to feel supported, inspired and empowered.
Fighting the mind does not judge or discriminate and fees for this service will be kept at an affordable minimum.

Funds raised from our raffle will be donated to our chosen organisation, Suicide Awareness/ Prevention, founded by Robert Norman Read.
This organisation helps thousands of people daily and saves lives throughout NZ and Globally.
More about this organisation can be found by clicking the following link: https://www.facebook.com/SuicidePreventionAwarenes/

We are determined to see mortality rates decrease, for families and those living with ED's to receive the support they so desperately need within their own communities and to educate young children/ teens on the ongoing risks associated with Eating Disorders, and much more!
