Eating Disorder Resources

Are you or your loved one struggling with an eating disorder? Are you a parent not sure what to do or where to look for resources?

Dealing with an eating disorder is extremely difficult and there are no easy answers. It is going to be hard, really hard. This is a journey, there is no quick fix but there are resources and getting you support and education are critical. You do not need to have the answers but be willing to be present and willing to work through the process. Empower yourself with resources and continue to ask questions.

Here is a list of non profit organizations that offer great information, handouts, podcasts, support groups etc.

National Eating Disorder Association

Recovery Warrior

Eating Disorder Hope

The Project Heal
