National Eating Disorder Awareness Week
THIS WEEK ONLY!!!!
This week is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. At Sevenly, we have chosen The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) as our cause partner of the week. We want to tell you all about the resources they offer and the world-changing work they do in the world.
Their theme last year was, Come As You Are. In 2020, they are building off of last year’s success and continued relevance, and are repeating #ComeAsYouAre again for National Eating Disorder Awareness Week! From February 24th to March 1st, they are encouraging the community to embrace this year’s theme, Come as You Are: Hindsight is 20/20.
The National Eating Disorders Association is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders. The United States has at least 20 million women and 10 million men who will suffer from an eating disorder at some point during their lives.
Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses that affect people of all gender, ethnicity, size, age, or background. Eating disorders are serious with the second-highest mortality rate of all mental health disorders. Only opioid addiction is higher.
Since eating disorders are often a widely misunderstood illness, care and support can seem inaccessible. Individuals commonly feel helpless, hopeless, and frightened. This is where NEDA comes in! Their programs and services raise awareness, build communities of support and recovery, fund research, and put life-saving resources into the hands of those in need.
Support individuals and families affected by eating disorders and serve as a catalyst for prevention, cures, and access to quality care
NEDA envisions a world without eating disorders
