Q: Why does early intervention matter?

A: If someone is exhibiting signs or thoughts of struggling with an eating disorder, intervening during the early stages of development can significantly increase the likelihood of preventing the onset of a full-blown eating disorder. It also leads to greater chances of a full recovery and can prevent years of struggle. Bottom line, early intervention can save lives.

Q: How can I get involved or raise awareness?

A: This year, we are asking everyone to complete the online eating disorders screening and to encourage their loved ones, friends, colleagues, and more to take part as well. In addition to sharing the screening, you can learn more about these illnesses and how important it is to keep the conversation about eating disorders relevant and ongoing. Sharing facts and stats online, hosting an event, or participating in our social media events are great ways to be a part of this year’s initiative. website and the NEDA Helpline: 1 (800) 931-2237.
