Overcoming an eating disorder takes professional help, but it is also important to have a strong support team. Whether you have been personally affected by an eating disorder or care about someone who has, NEDA's programs and services are designed to help you find the help and support you need.
Find Help & Support
NEDA's Information and Referral Helpline is a great place to start if you are contemplating getting help or already know that it is what you need, as we are equipped with the necessary resources to help you find treatment, support groups and research studies that can be of assistance. We also have a variety of programs designed to provide personal support to individuals who are suffering and family members who are supporting a loved one with an eating disorder. From insurance issues to loss support to recovery maintenance, NEDA has programs and resources that can help. Learn more.
One of the most important things you can do about eating disorders is to learn more about them. Take the time to more fully understand these very complex illnesses. We have a wide variety of resources that can help educate and are available for distribution in your local schools or community. Learn more.
