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.

MUST SEE: Watch The Public Health Connections’ Forum on Eating Disorders, Mental Health and Body Image
“More than 30 million Americans — women and men, children and adults — grapple with eating disorders. These complex illnesses, which include anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, severely undermine health and cost lives. This event explored the many dimensions to eating disorders, including their biological bases, risk factors and treatment options. What role does body image play, and how do industries, such as fashion and advertising, often promulgate unrealistic societal standards of beauty? How might women and girls, in particular, be affected by such pressure? And what’s to be done? For example, would enacting legislation that requires minimum BMIs for models, or requiring disclosures of digitally altered ads, help? This panel included expertise in psychiatry, children’s health, policy and eating disorders prevention.”
