2. Urge Lawmakers to Support Eating Disorders Research Funding & the ACA!

Your representatives want to hear from you about the issues you care about! Contact your Senators today to encourage them to increase funding for eating disorders research in the military and to protect the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Essential Health Benefit of Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Services and the expansion of mental health parity.

Send an e-mail, or make a phone call to their office today and tell them why this is important to you!

3. Take and Share the Eating Disorders Screening!

Everyone should get screened for an eating disorder. These illnesses often hide in plain sight, so whether you have serious concerns or just an inkling about yourself or a loved one, take the screening. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder but recovery is absolutely possible and early intervention greatly improves the chances of success. It’s no exaggeration when we say three minutes can save a life.

Complete the screening now and share the link with friends, family, and more.
