Males Affected by an Eating Disorder

Eating disorders are often seen as a women’s issue because females are more commonly affected, but boys and men struggle with eating disorders, too. The association with a women’s issue can present additional barriers for males that are struggling and may feel embarrassed about asking for help. They may face more difficulties finding a treatment provider or facility, and may not know any other males who have struggled. This roundtable is for males who have been personally affected to meet other males, to talk about their unique challenges and experiences, and share helpful resources for sustaining recovery.
