Eating Disorders Awareness Week

I've been reading about art therapy in the treatment of eating disorders all weekend and just realized that this week is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.

"In the United States, as many as 10 million females and 1 million males are fighting a life and death battle with an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia.(Crowther et al., 1992; Fairburn et al., 1993; Gordon, 1990; Hoek, 1995; Shisslak et al., 1995)."

This year's theme is "Everybody knows Somebody". If you do know someone, be supportive. If you are someone struggling with an eating disorder, there is help out there for you- you are not alone.
