Eating Disorders Awareness 

"I want people who struggle with eating disorders to know it is possible to move from being 'in recovery' to being 'fully recovered'" – Jenni Schaefer

Eating disorders are characterized by disturbances in eating behavior. This can mean eating too much, not eating enough, or eating in an extremely unhealthy manner (such as binging or stuffing yourself over and over and purging).

Living life with anorexia or bulimia can be a devastating experience, and without treatment, anorexia can be life-threatening. But the good news is eating disorders can be overcome.

Learn how recovery can be possible for you too! Check out this list of resources, interviews and personal story submissions to learn new information about eating disorders and get inspired to set out on your own recovery journey!
