As National Eating Disorders Awareness Week comes to a close, I thought I’d share a few of the many posts and images that others have used to spread awareness. Eating disorders are a true epidemic in the US and are becoming more prevalent elsewhere as Western culture spreads around the world. The more we can do to educate others, the better the chances that sufferers will get the help that they need to recover.

Highlights of the week:

A few more images and important facts posted by Google+ users:

And to end on an uplifting note, there’s this story from Binghamton University (BU), all about how their student Eating Disorders Awareness Committee worked throughout the week to highlight positivity and promote self-compassion.

If you shared #NEDAwareness content this week, thank you. I’d love to see your blog posts, images and social media updates–please share in the comments! Together we can build a brighter future for those who struggle with disordered eating.

      Thank you for writing it! Orthorexia is such a misunderstood disorder–it needs all the coverage it can get so people can begin to recognize it for what it is.
