NEDAwareness Week is dedicated to bringing the spotlight to the importance of healthy body images, the seriousness of eating disorders and improving public understanding of their causes, triggers and treatments nation-wide. By increasing awareness and access to resources, we can encourage early detection and intervention, which can improve the likelihood of full recovery for millions.
