Eating Disorders Awareness Week (EDAW)

Eating Disorders Awareness Week (EDAW) is the largest and best-known eating disorders outreach effort in the country. EDAW is an opportunity to improve public understanding of eating disorders and their causes, dangers, and treatments and to empower everyone to reduce risk factors and join prevention efforts.

Body Acceptance Week

Body Acceptance Week

Body Acceptance Week is an exciting initiative promoting body acceptance—including body positivity, body neutrality, and body liberation—for all. As part of NEDA’s commitment to eating disorder prevention, Body Acceptance Week provides resources, education, and support for those experiencing body dissatisfaction and its associated risk factors.

No Diet Day

#No Diet Day

May 6th is #NoDietDay, an annual social media campaign to encourage the rejection of diet culture. This movement, started by Mary Evans Young in 1992, celebrates the importance of body acceptance, diversity, and respect for all body shapes and sizes.

2023 Back to School

Back to School

As students go back to school, there are ways parents, teachers, coaches, counselors, peers can detect students who are struggling with an eating disorder and support them. Luckily, with early detection, intervention, and awareness, each of us can make a difference. This back to school season we have compiled resources for you to learn more about eating disorders, the warning signs and where to go for help, blog posts by those with lived experience, and videos from our Campus Warriors.
