Eating Disorder Awareness Week
The 2016 National Eating Disorder Awareness (NEDA) Week is dedicated to raising awareness of the mental and physical consequences of eating disorders and highlight the treatment and support options available.
The aim of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week is to ultimately prevent eating disorders and body image issues, while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment. Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses — not choices — and it's important to recognize the pressures, attitudes and behaviors that shape the disorder.
