NEDAwareness Week 2009: February 22-28




2009 NEDAwareness Week Theme:
...until eating disorders are history


The mission of NEDAwareness Week

Our aim of NEDAwareness Week is to ultimately prevent eating disorders and body image issues while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment. Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses — not choices — and it’s important to recognize the pressures, attitudes and behaviors that shape the disorder.

NEDAwareness Week reaches millions with messages of hope and recovery.

What started with professionals in the field who are now known as Founders of NEDA in 1987 has become a passionate movement known as NEDAwareness Week . The largest eating disorders outreach effort in the country is held the last week in every February and has helped reach millions of people with messages of prevention, hope and recovery.
