I’m teaming up with the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) for National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. 

Part of the week long awareness campaign is sharing stats and information to remove some of the myths and stigma that surround eating disorders. Everybody knows somebody who suffers: at least one in ten of us are living with or have suffered from an eating disorder.

All sizes. ALL shapes. Male, female. All races. All ages. All of us.

Via NEDA

The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) is the leading non-profit organization in the United States advocating on behalf of and supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders. Reaching millions every year, we campaign for prevention, improved access to quality treatment, and increased research funding to better understand and treat eating disorders. We work with partners and volunteers to develop programs and tools to help everyone who seeks assistance.

Not sure if you MAY suffer from an eating disorder? Take a screening here OR call the toll free, confidential Helpline, Monday-Friday, 9:00 am- 5:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time: 1-800-931-2237

NATIONAL EATING DISORDER AWARENESS WEEK

Our Theme

This year’s NEDAwareness Week theme is “Everybody Knows Somebody” because awareness of eating disorders is certainly spreading. Last year, NEDAwareness Week registrants spanned all 50 states and 30 other countries. We hope to have another record-breaking year in 2013, and have everyone commit to doing just one thing!

Our Mission

The aim of NEDAwareness 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.

What is NEDAwareness Week?

NEDAwareness Week is a collective effort of primary volunteers, including eating disorder professionals, health care providers, students, educators, social workers, and individuals committed to raising awareness of the dangers surrounding eating disorders and the need for early intervention and treatment.

How NEDAwareness Week Works

NEDA asks everyone to do just one thing to help raise awareness and provide accurate information about eating disorders. NEDAwareness Week participants can choose from a huge range of ways to get involved: Distribute info pamphlets and put up posters, write one letter for Media Watchdogs, register as a Volunteer Speaker or host a Volunteer Speaker, post information on Facebook or arrange interactive and educational activities such as a meditation and yoga event, panel discussions, fashion shows, movie screenings, art exhibits and more. As an official NEDAwareness Week participant you can be involved in any way that works with your schedule, resources, community, and interests.These events and activities are vital to attracting public media attention - on local, national and international levels.

Question

Anonymous asked: Hi, I'm a therapist starting a group for students that struggle with negative body image and disordered eating. I LOVE the photo of the woman holding up her hand with the phrase "stop hating your body" written on it and was wondering if I might be able to use it on the flyers I'm handing out to students. Please let me know if it's your picture and if that would be ok, or if you know of someone else who took it that I could contact. Thanks! Jenna

unfortunately it’s not my picture….i found it on google. i’m not sure who you’d contact for it, but maybe searching “stop hating your body” in google might give you a link to who’s picture it is. sorry i couldn’t be more help!
