If you know someone who may be struggling with an eating disorder,
they need professional help. Period.
Fortunately, there are great resources all over the web, providing answers to difficult questions, ways to approach an individual about the illness, links to support groups, treatment centers, and general information about eating disorders. Knowledge is power, and we want YOU to be informed. You are not alone in this struggle.
Please keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list of resources, just something to get you started. If you or a loved one is struggling with a distorted view of their body, themselves, or their relationship with food and weight, the links above are a good start. No online resource however, can replace good professional help. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to a treatment provider near you for assistance — it’s as easy as picking up the phone and asking your doctor or family physician for some recommendations.
