Online Help for Eating Disorders

Being as this week is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, I wanted to let you know about some great websites that can offer information, support, and help.

SomethingFishy: This is an active website with lots of forums, so it's a great way to get info in a supportive community. It recommends ways you can help a loved one who has an eating disorder, and it also has a comprehensive list of treatment centers so you can find one near you.


National Eating Disorders Association: If you're looking for someone to talk to, you can call its toll-free helpline at 800-931-2237, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pacific.

EatingDisordersOnline.com: This website is full of recent articles on eating disorders, and gives lots of valuable information on types of eating disorders, nutrition, and recovery. It can help you find treatment near you.

Eating-Disorder-Information.com: This inspirational website created by a recovered anorexic and bulimic provides information on eating disorders and related topics as well as poetry and interactive support.
