Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2017

Monday, February 27, 2017

Today marks the start of Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2017.
Eating disorders are serious psychological illnesses with the highest mortality rate out of all the mental illnesses. Eating disorders are not diets. Eating disorders are not fads. Eating disorders are not actually about food and weight like they manifest themselves. Rather, they are actually a means of coping, a very destructive means of coping with some form of emotional distress. They are the person's attempt to deal with their difficulties.
EDA are delighted to be working in conjunction with AWARE this week to launch our first public talk : Lets Talk About... Eating Disorders and Depression. It promises to be an excellent evening whereby we will hear from experts in the fields of both eating disorders and depression.
If you or a loved one are struggling with an eating disorder, please reach out for the support you need and deserve. You do not need to do this journey alone. Recovery is always possible. Give us a call on 028 90 235959 or email for confidential support and advice.
