Binge eating disorder will affect one in fifty of us in our lifetime, it is the most common but least understood eating disorder. It isn’t about being greedy or lacking in willpower, but a serious mental illness which many suffer with alone, often with the fear of how others might react the reason they don’t reach out for help. From our work we know that people with binge eating disorder face unique challenges in seeking and finding help. There is a significant amount of shame and stigma associated with the illness resulting in unhelpful and often harmful reactions from loved ones and sometimes even healthcare professionals.
We want EDAW 2021 to help start to change these conversations, helping more kindness and compassion to be shown to people with binge eating disorder at every stage of their illness and recovery.
Date: Thursday 4th March
We want to give health professionals the opportunity to learn more about binge eating disorder and to be able to ask questions to Jessica Griffiths, Clinician Lead at Beat.
