Calling All Men

We’re really excited to be working on a project on eating disorders in men. There’s still a misconception that only women get eating disorders – and it’s yet another barrier to proper support.

We’d love your help to make sure this project properly reflects the issues men with eating disorders face. So if this is something you identify with, and you think you could use your experiences to help shape this work, we want to hear from you.


We’re running an info session on Wednesday 7 September at 3-4pm. We’ll share more about our upcoming project, and how you can get involved.

Fill in the form below and we’ll send you a Zoom link to join the session. (The information we collect will only be used to communicate with you about this project, and will not be shared outside the project team.)

Once we’ve told you what we’re planning and answered all your questions, we’ll invite you to join us for a focus group where we’ll get into your experiences and what you’d like to see from this work.

Key dates:

Wednesday 7 September @3-4pm: A chance for you to learn a bit more about the project and how we’ll involve people with lived experience.

Tuesday 13 September @5:30-6:30pm: A training session to help you get the most out of the focus group.

Wednesday 21 September @5:30-7:30pm: Focus group – a more structured discussion where you’ll be able to contribute experiences and ideas.

If you apply to join the focus group, we may also invite you to an informal meeting with Martha Williams, Beat’s Senior Clinical Advice Coordinator, to learn more about you and answer any questions you have.

Who can sign up?

We want to represent a broad range of experiences of men with eating disorders in the UK, and welcome men from all backgrounds, including:

We’re committed to ensuring our activities are accessible. We’ll discuss any accessibility needs or barriers to involvement with you so we can support you to comfortably participate.
