The National Eating Disorders Association’s (NEDA’s) National Eating Disorders Awareness (#NEDAwareness) Week is the largest and best-known eating disorders outreach effort in the country. In 2019, NEDAwareness Week encouraged you to Come as You Are, highlighting NEDA’s movement towards inclusivity in the greater eating disorder community and unifying the field. This campaign expressed that, regardless of your body shape, weight, race, gender identity, ability, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, or your stage of body acceptance and eating disorder recovery, your story is valid and deserves to be heard.

Building off last year’s success and continued relevance, we want you to Come as You Are again for NEDAwareness Week 2020! From February 24th to March 1st, we encourage our community to embrace this year’s theme, Come as You Are: Hindsight is 20/20, by reflecting on the positive steps they’ve taken — including those stemming from setbacks or challenges — toward accepting themselves and others.

Through NEDAwareness Week 2020, NEDA aims 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. We hope Come as You Are: Hindsight is 20/20 offers the opportunity for all people to get involved. By sharing our stories of what we have learned as we go through our eating disorder and body acceptance journeys and how the greater community is affected, we offer the opportunity to continue the conversation and prioritize inclusivity.
