Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to provide a profile of Kayleigh Beard-Blackband. Design/methodology/approach: Kayleigh provides a short biographical description of her life. She is then interviewed by Jerome. Findings: Kayleigh achieved so much while under intense domestic and academic pressure. This gives her hope that she will be able to recover from recurrent depression. Research limitations/implications: Single case studies are of course only one person’s story. However they can offer key personal insights and provide encouragement to others. Practical implications: Kayleigh’s comments, “It is easy to fall off the radar in mental health services,” suggests services need to ensure that all referrals are followed up. Social implications: Services need to offer individuals the help that they want. Many will have a preference for individual over group treatments. People should be offered a choice. Originality/value: Kayleigh’s story is a remarkable account of survival and growth against all the odds
