It Takes a Village: Community Involvement in the Treatment of Eating Disorders

Recovery cannot occur in isolation; yet all too often eating disorder sufferers must navigate the difficult road of recovery with little support. This presentation is a call for action to enlist community involvement in the prevention and treatment process for individuals affected by eating disorders and their family members. With a focus on the ways our communities can be supportive we will highlight two programs, Students Promoting Eating Disorder Awareness and Knowledge (SPEAK) and RootED Recovery.
