Though this year’s National Eating Disorder Awareness Week is coming to a close, it can and should be just the beginning of support we lend to the cause in 2013.
Whether you are living with an eating disorder, know someone who is, or simply want to help those affected, please consider Liking on Facebook or Following on Twitter the pages linked to below:
Eating Disorder Hope — Promoting an end to eating disordered behavior, embracing life and pursuing recovery.

Someday Melissa — Raising awareness of eating disorders and the importance of early treatment; the cornerstone of the organization’s work is the award winning documentary, “Someday Melissa.”
This week and, in some cases, for some time now, I have found these people, campaigns and organizations to be particularly helpful and inspiring in the realm of eating disorder information and recovery.
