Anyone can be struggling with an eating disorder, and there is help out there.

It is almost Eating Disorder Awareness Week, February 26 – March 3, and the weekend before Feb 23-25), there is lots of help for anyone struggling with eating disorders.  

And in that light, I want to make a public service announcement to anyone reading this…

Eating Disorders Awareness Week -support groupsEating disorders do not have a look. They do not discriminate. Anyone can be struggling with their relationship with food:

  • people in larger bodies
  • people of color
  • boys and men
  • anyone of any gender expression or gender identity, and more!

This weekend the National Alliance for Eating Disorders is increasing awareness about eating disorders; they are offering Free groups around the clock TODAY, Saturday, February 24th, and they have a wonderful helpline.

Reach out to the Alliance. They are here this weekend to help.
