Event Description

Join the National Initiative for Eating Disorders (NIED) for our 67th FREE Eating Disorder Symposium. This month, we are discussing the challenge of being a parent and having an eating disorder. Parents who struggle with body image, disordered eating, and Eating Disorders face unique challenges that are often overlooked. These include barriers to accessing appropriate health care, a developed fear of child protection services and difficulty carrying out daily parenting tasks. Gain insights from lived experience parents looking for judgement-free mental health supports so that they can be the best caregivers that they want to be.

Event is FREE, ALL are welcome. Donations gratefully accepted. For more information, contact Wendy at [email protected]
