Helping you create a message the world can see.

Feb. 22-28, 2015 is Eating Disorder Awareness Week.

According to the National Eating Disorders Association, 20 million women and 10 million men in the United States suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some point in their lives. Anorexia nervosa has the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder, and eating disorders are also linked to suicidality.
