Stefan Tegelj is a peer mentor with Eating Disorders Victoria.
After losing over 20kg and getting to his goal weight, Stefan still thought he was fat - what he saw in the mirror did not reflect his reality. He sought help. and with the support of a counsellor and specific body dysmorphia health service, Stefan started to get to help he needed.
Today, he is a passionate advocate for others suffering Eating Disorder through the peer mentoring program which was recently funded for another two years
