Eating disorders are widely misunderstood and stigmatised illnesses. We believe that everyone who is suffering should be able to access the help they need, as quickly as possible.
That's why we're working with Beat, the eating disorders charity, to campaign for positive change around eating disorders support.
Sign Beat's petition to increase training in courses for medical students and junior doctors about eating disorders.*
Get involved with Beat's campaigns to end the pain and suffering caused by eating disorders.
