Jay Taylor  

Jay Taylor Beat Young Ambassador

1988 - 2013

Jay was one of our first Ambassadors (when Beat was previously known as the Eating Disorders Association) and was a pioneer of a group of young people who have grown both in numbers and stature, courageously speaking out about their own experiences in order to help raise awareness, reduce the stigma that still surrounds these devastating illnesses and help and encourage others to seek treatment at the earliest possible opportunity.

In the work she did with us as an Ambassador she will have helped a lot of young people similarly affected and even though, sadly, Jay lost her own personal battle we have no doubt that over the years she has inspired others to seek the help they both need and deserve.
Our thoughts are with her family at this difficult and distressing time.
