Eating Disorders Awareness Week -- Feb 22-28

The aim of NEDAwareness Week is to ultimately prevent eating disorders and body image issues while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment. Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses — not choices — and it’s important to recognize the pressures, attitudes and behaviors that shape the disorder.

For more information, visit the National Eating Disorders Awareness Week site or the Ohio Psychological Association site for more information.
