National Eating Disorders Awareness Week
Adjusting to college life can be difficult for many, and the desire to fit in can make students susceptible to eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating. 95% of people with eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 25, and the majority of those who have an eating disorder don’t seek treatment, often as a result of shame or social stigma. Events to reduce the stigma attached to eating disorders and let students know that help is available are currently being planned.

Free online screening at Eating Disorders Online Screening
