Eating Disorders Awareness Week
There are a lot of stigmas attached, which can make it difficult to reach out for help. But that’s also why it’s so important to.
That’s one reason why eating disorder groups across Canada are uniting to commemorate Eating Disorder Awareness Week — February 1 – 7 — combatting myths and outlining the many supports available.
If you have an eating disorder or know someone who does, talk to your family doctor or check out some of these resources to learn more and get help.
