About this event

Eating Disorders are a growing problem encountered by people of all ages and all genders today. They are complicated to understand, and there are many myths that are not helpful. This session will try to address some of these issues and will inform those watching and what they can do to support better. Questions which will be addressed include: What is an eating disorder? Is it all about food? How do I know if someone has an eating disorder? What are some dos and don'ts when trying to have a conversation and support? Where do I go for help and treatment?
