The National Eating Disorders Association eating disorders awareness week is February 21-27. The theme this year is 3 minutes can save a life. Neda is focusing on early intervention and encouraging everyone to take this 3 minute assessment.
Eating disorders are the 3rd leading chronic illness among adolescent females. Eating disorders also have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. The focus on early intervention is an important one. The longer a person has an eating disorder, the harder it is to treat and the less likely that a person will go into full remission. As a clinician it is our hope to see clients before they meet the criteria for a full blown eating disorder. Screening early can save lives! I hope you will take 3 minutes out of your day to do this assessment and to pass it on. Please help raise awareness for an important cause!
