World Eating Disorders Day 2021 will take place on June 2 across the globe. This year’s theme is #Equity4EatingDisorders. At F.E.A.S.T. , we would like to invite all of our community members to share how inequity has shaped their eating disorders treatment experience through either a short blog post (it can be anonymous if you prefer) or a short 2-3 minute video clip. Due to the tight deadline, these are due by this Saturday, May 29, and can be sent to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s important for our community to be represented and for our voices to be heard on this important topic. You can talk about inequity in addressing all types of eating disorders, inequity in access to treatment and recovery, inequity for marginalized or under represented groups, or any other type of inequity that you have encountered in your journey. Please include the impact that this inequity had on early intervention/treatment/access to care, etc. It’s important to tell our stories and to call out these inequities so that they can be addressed and corrected.
Please help F.E.A.S.T. mark World Eating Disorders Day 2021!
