If you are unable to find the resources you need through our website, or are unsure where to begin in seeking treatment for yourself or a loved one, a Helpline volunteer trained in eating disorder knowledge may help you sort out what the appropriate action to take might be in finding assistance and assessing your options. The Helpline is often an initial step for those suffering from an eating disorder. Helpline volunteers have extensive training to prepare them for their role as a means of support and are knowledgeable in various areas related to the eating disorder field.
