Chances are you know SOMEBODY who has an eating disorder or poor body confidence. So many in our society struggle with their body image and engage in unhealthy dieting behaviors that can lead to eating disorders. Eating disorders do not discriminate: young and old, all genders, economic classes and races are impacted. Over one-half of teenage girls and nearly one-third of teenage boys use unhealthy weight control behaviors AND eating disorders continue to have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness.
“Eating disorders are still misunderstood and incredibly hard to treat. Having a support system is crucial for those who suffer as it’s the only way they can work towards making the choice to live. Andrew and I are excited to chair MEDA’s 25th anniversary gala because it is only by creating awareness that we can help individuals struggling get the support system they need. Your support helps make that system stronger. Your support gives parents and friends a place to reach out to for help and the sick a place to work through their illness. Your support gives hope. And hope is the thing that really heals.” ~ Erin Gates
