We are honored to be participating in NEDAwareness Week. The theme this year, “I Had No Idea” aims to bring awareness to the significant impact eating disorders can have on individuals, couples, families, and communities. “Eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect both a person’s emotional and physical health. In the United States alone, 30 million people will be impacted by an eating disorder at some point in their lifetime. These conditions affect all kinds of people and don’t discriminate by race, age, sex, age or size.” – National Eating Disorders Awareness (NEDA) 

We invite you to join us in participating in this inspiring and eye-opening week. There are many ways you can “get in the know,” including:

// Are You In the Know? Take the Quiz

// Read NEDAwareness Articles

// #CaptureHope: participate in the Instagram campaign

// Infographics

/ Media and Body Image

// Further Reading

If you or a loved one are struggling with an eating disorder or have questions about eating disorder treatment, contact Oliver-Pyatt Centers or NEDA.
