When Rachael Palin turned 13 she developed severe depression and has been suffering ever since. When, a year later she was moved to a specialist unit 153 miles away from home, her mum, Tara, didn't know what to do.
Feeling like no one was listening and running out of options, Tara logged onto Change.org and started a petition to get her daughter care closer to home. In days she managed to get thousands of signers, and discovered that there were hundreds of supportive people out there with stories just like hers.
With the support of over 200,000 signers Tara's campaign made national headlines, and she won meetings with politicians and NHS executives.
Now, after a nearly 2 year long campaign Rachael is finally moving home and being reunited with her mum.
To the people who signed Mum Tara said;
"I can't thank everyone who supported me and sent me messages enough. They have kept me going over the past two years. Everyone has been amazing."
