Forums

Welcome to the National Eating Disorders Association's forums!

Often it can be difficult to talk about eating disorders, which can make it difficult to discuss what you are going through. However, whether you are personally affected by an eating disorder or supporting someone who is, the NEDA forums are designed to be a safe and welcoming space to discuss issues related to eating disorders, disordered eating and body image.

Please read our Community Guidelines before posting in forum discussions. By posting or participating in any forum, you agree to be held to these terms, and understand that any content or user in violation may be removed without notice by NEDA staff or volunteers.

Have a suggestion for a new forum topic or want to report something to our moderators? Email info@nationaleatingdisorders.org and let us know.
