Sock it to Eating Disorders and seek treatment

A special campaign to raise awareness and understanding of eating disorders, challenging stereotypes and stigmas, is running from 25 February to 3 March. We are calling on local residents this Eating Disorders Awareness Week to ‘sock it to eating disorders’ by being aware of the warning signs and the treatment that is available.

On average, 149 weeks pass before those experiencing eating disorder symptoms seek help. Recognising the signs is an important first step for a sufferer or their friends and family. Warning signs of an eating disorder include: missing meals, obsessively keeping track of weight, complaining about being fat - even when a normal weight, and refusal to eat in public places.
