Are you concerned someone you love may have an Eating Disorder?
Eating disorder symptoms can vary from person to person, and be masked in many different ways.
They are serious and potentially life-threatening mental illnesses.
Eating disorders don’t discriminate. They affect all ages, cultural and socioeconomic groups and both genders. Take the Eating Disorder test here.
Eating Disorders include: Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Otherwise Specified Feeding Eating Disorder (OSFED) and Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID).
Experience tells us it’s critical to identify eating disorders as early as possible. Families are often the first to notice early warning signs and eating disorder symptoms.
