Spread the Word: What is Eating Disorders Awareness Week?

Eating Disorders Awareness Week

Eating disorders awareness week is a great opportunity to educate yourself, your family, and your community about the signs and symptoms of eating disorders and the resources available to those affected. Here are some ideas to help you celebrate this important week:

Educate yourself

Eating disorders awareness week is a great opportunity to learn more about eating disorders, their impact, and how to help those affected. Spend some time researching and learning about eating disorders, how to identify them, and how to access treatment and support. Become aware of the stigma and discrimination associated with these mental health issues and how to combat them.

Reach out

Reach out to people in your life who have been affected by an eating disorder and listen to their stories. Talk to your family, friends, and colleagues about eating disorders and how to support those affected. You can also contact local organizations and see if they need volunteers or donations.

Participate in activities

Attend local events such as walks and talks, or organize your own event to raise awareness and funds for organizations supporting those with eating disorders.  Participate in online events such as webinars, forums, and support groups. Learn about the resources available in your community and how to access them.

Spread the word

Post about eating disorders awareness week on social media, use the hashtag #EDAwarenessWeek, and make sure to include resources for those affected.  Follow social media accounts and online communities dedicated to eating disorder awareness.

Show your support

Wear a green ribbon or clothing to show your support for eating disorders awareness week.

By taking the time to learn and participate in activities, you can help spread the word and show your support for eating disorders awareness week.
