The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) joins the National Eating Disorders Information Centre (NEDIC) and National Initiative for Eating Disorders (NIED) in observing Eating Disorders Awareness Week, February 1-7, 2018
The theme for EDAW 2018, “One Size Doesn’t Fit All” emphasizes that Eating Disorders can affect any individual regardless of gender, age, ability, race and ethnic identity, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status. There are 7 billion people on the planet, and 7 billion sizes.
Too many Canadians suffering from Eating Disorders do not have reasonable access to timely, comprehensive and specialized treatment. Early detection and intervention can result in full recovery from an Eating Disorder. For further information please read Canadian Research on Eating Disorders – 2018
