February is Awareness month with National Eating Disorder Awareness week being February 21-27, 2022.
Often referred to as NEDAwareness Week, the tradition of focusing on eating disorder advocacy and support in the last week of February/first week of March has been observed for over 30 years.
Hosted by NEDA, this week has often involved numerous supportive, inspiring, and informative opportunities in communities around the United States and the world.
Many of these include talks, resource fairs, social media messaging and engagements, and community walks focused on raising awareness and money to finance treatment and research of eating disorders. More information to come.
Each season, Linda Mazur, Jack Mazur, and Ellen Bennett will discuss a variety of mental health issues, from eating disorders, anxiety, suicide, and everything in between. They will interview experts and authors, as well as individuals with lived experience. They will share some of their personal experiences around anorexia, grief, advocacy, and the importance of finding a village of support. They believe we must do better as a community, and that we are stronger because of our connections. Join us as we start the conversations to end the pervasive shame and stigma associated with mental health issues, as we learn to embrace, understand, and support those who struggle, as we help each other pick up the pieces.
