National Eating Disorders Awareness Week

Now more than ever, society seems to put a lot of pressure on individuals to maintain a particular physical image. There is so much pressure that some people resort to starving themselves to fit in. From February 24th through March 1st, the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) would like to spread awareness about the psychological disorders that affect the millions of people suffering from these self-inflicting conditions. Many studies have linked eating disorders with feelings of depression and guilt.

What are Eating Disorders?

Eating disorders affect up to 30 million people in the United States. They are mental conditions that cause sufferers to become overly preoccupied with food and how it impacts their self-image. Studies show that mortality rates are higher in those with eating disorders than any other mental illness. From a statistical standpoint, one person dies as a direct result of an eating disorder every hour.

Types of Eating Disorders

Variations of eating disorders exist, far more than the common ones most people know, like bulimia and anorexia.

Help for Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are dangerous, and cases are becoming more and more prevalent in today’s society. Fortunately, there are programs available that can help treat the condition so people can learn to live a happy life.
