Veronica has cared for her two daughters who both suffered with an eating disorder. She also cared for her brother who had schizophrenia and her late husband who had colonic cancer.
Veronica runs her own organisation “Eating Disorders & Carers” which covers a variety of roles focused on supporting and advising carers in mental health including eating disorders and addictions.
Her work includes training both professionals and carers surrounding the issues of co-dependency for which she did her own treatment in the same clinic as one of her daughters.
In 2013 she won “Carer Contributor of the Year 2013″ an award given by the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
