Public Health Not Public Shaming
Ask the Government to rethink their obesity strategy to ensure that people affected by eating disorders are not further put at risk.
Eating disorders can have a devastating impact on the lives of sufferers and the people around them. Beat’s vision is an end to the pain and suffering caused by these serious mental illnesses. Campaign with us and help make that vision a reality.
To bring about positive change, we need to encourage a compassionate, understanding society where people feel able to talk about their illness. We need to ensure that everyone knows how to spot the early symptoms, equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge to make a fast referral, and establish funding so that everyone can get the treatment they need as quickly as possible. In everything we do, we focus on early treatment – we know that the faster someone can access treatment for their eating disorder, the better their chance of a full and sustained recovery.
It means that there’s a lot of work to be done, and we can’t do it without your help.
