You are here

Help is available and you are not alone. Let the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) be part of your support network by utilizing the available programs.

The NEDA Helpline is often an initial step for those suffering from an eating disorder or their loved ones. Trained Helpline volunteers are available Monday - Thursday, 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM ET and Fridays, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM ET, to answer your questions about seeking treatment for yourself or a loved one, finding support groups, assessing your options, and finding information and resources about eating disorders.

NEDA offers a number of available options to connect with the Helpline:

Call: 1 (800) 931-2237

You can always leave a message for the Helpline or send an email to if outside of operating hours, and we will return your call or email promptly.

NEDA Navigator Program

This program connects those who are caring for a loved one struggling with an eating disorder, or individuals struggling themselves, to volunteer NEDA Navigators who can share information, experiences, and resources to help others figure out where to go next and how to get to recovery. The NEDA Navigator program is a peer-to-peer, online program geared towards offering short-term, goal-oriented assistance to those who are currently battling an eating disorder or who are supporting a loved one who is struggling. To request Navigator support, please contact NEDA's Information & Referral Helpline by calling 1 (800) 931-2237, emailing, or chatting online with a Helpline volunteer via our Click to Chat feature.
