Our 2019 theme, Come as You Are, highlights NEDA’s movement towards inclusivity in the greater eating disorder community and our goal of unifying the field of eating disorders. In particular, Come As You Are sends a message to individuals at all stages of body acceptance and eating disorders recovery that their stories are valid. We invite everyone, especially those whose stories have not been widely recognized, to have the opportunity to speak out, share their experiences & connect with others.

We aim to start conversations with a variety of communities who are struggling at similar rates to those traditionally and stereotypically thought of as the person with an eating disorder, and offer the opportunity to see themselves in others stories and recognize that they too are included, no matter where they are with their relationship with food or their bodies.

So this NEDAwareness Week, come as you are – not as you think you should be.
