It’s Good You’re Here…

Someone you know is battling an eating disorder. It could be your mother, father, daughter, son, neighbor, friend, colleague. Or you. Nearly 10 million women and one million men in the United States suffer from anorexia and bulimia; many millions more from binge eating disorder, disordered eating, body dissatisfaction, and weight concerns.

You may be unaware of the personal yet profound struggle that haunts these individuals daily. On the outside they may appear successful, happy and leading a rewarding life. But as the cliché admonishes, looks can be deceiving. Early detection, intervention and treatment are essential for successful treatment and full recovery. EDRC is here to help guide you and your loved ones through the recovery process.

On 4 May 2017, The Santa Clara County Behavioral Health Board (SCCBHB) honored Silicon Valley’s Eating Disorder Resource Center (EDRC) with the AGENCY HERO award, a part of the Community Heroes Award Ceremony. These honors are given to community agencies and members who have made an extraordinary difference in the lives of people with behavioral health illness.

Toni Tullys, Director of County Behavioral Services, and Gary Miles, Ph.D., Board President, presented the award to Founder Janice Bremis and volunteer Max Sala, recognizing the EDRC’s outstanding service and commitment to increasing research efforts, professional development, treatment access, and public awareness on eating disorders. The EDRC’s mission is inspired by Ms. Bremis’s dedication to end suffering for individuals by promoting access to quality care. We provide families and local communities resources for prevention and treatment and offer multiple support groups across the Bay Area.
