28th Feb – 6th March 2022 : Eating Disorders Awareness Week
An eating disorder is an unhealthy attitude towards food, which can make you obsessed with your eating patterns. Eating disorders can involve eating too much or too little and using food to manage your feelings. The charity BEAT runs Eating Disorders Awareness Week annually to tackle myths and misunderstanding around eating disorders.
This week the Mental Health Peer Educators / Wellbeing Supporters have been sharing information about what defines an eating disorder, the symptoms, impact, treatment and available support as well as providing tips on health eating.
