For #eatingdisorderawarenessweek, National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) asked Project HEAL to reflect on the last 20 years and on the future of the eating disorder field - as an organization that has helped pave the way for eating disorder treatment, research & advocacy, and that is striving to push the field to continue to grow and change for the better. Here's what our CEO, Rebecca Eyre, had to say.

"The eating disorder field has evolved a great deal over the last twenty years. Thinking back to the early 2000s, there were dramatically fewer treatment providers, insurance coverage was even more impossible than it is now (because the Federal Mental Health Parity Act of 2008 had not yet been passed), and the stereotypes of what eating disorders β€œlook” like was even more narrow than today. Some great research has since been conducted (albeit not nearly enough), and we’re beginning to better understand what causes eating disorders, how to treat them, and how eating disorders disproportionately affect people with marginalized identities. It’s so important to look at it with a long-term perspective and see how far we’ve come, because day to day, we at Project HEAL are painfully aware of how far we have to go. As the leading eating disorder nonprofit focused on eliminating barriers to treatment access, we’re inundated with heartbreaking stories how inequitable, discriminating, and inaccessible eating disorder treatment remains in 2022. What buoys us is that change is happening. Infuriatingly slow at times, disjointed at times, and often inadequate - but we are seeing change. We’re grateful to our equity-minded HEALers Circle partners - eating disorder providers across the country who generously donate their care or offer sliding scale rates to those who can't otherwise access care. We're grateful to NEDA for helping fund Project HEAL's Barriers to Treatment Access Study, so that we can finally have a clear picture of all that stands in the way of tens of millions who are ready to heal but unable to access care. And above all, we're grateful to the individuals who are struggling with eating disorders today - who are rising up and using their voices to change the global conversation about food and body, who are daring to ask for help despite hearing a loud "no" everywhere they turn, and who are coming together despite the often overwhelming feeling of brokenness at both the individual and systemic level. When we think about the many systems that are dysfunctional in this country, it's easy to become overwhelmed by the depth and breadth of the chasm between what is and what should be. But when Project HEAL thinks about the eating disorder treatment landscape, we see the future. Even on the darkest days, we know that we're on our way to a world where everyone with an eating disorder will have the opportunities and resources they need to heal. As humans, without an imagination for the future... without a whisper of hope that we might just get the thing we most need, want and deserve... we are lost. So we must diligently nurture our imagination for the future. A future where eating disorders are easily detected, readily understood, and affordably treated. A future where people with eating disorders feel safe and seen. A future where an eating disorder is neither a life sentence nor a death sentence. And if hope feels too hard for you today, please know that there are a lot of people you’ve never met holding and sustaining that hope for you. We’re building that world right now. Hope for accessible and affirming eating disorder healing is not a fantasy - it’s realistic and it’s coming.”

This #EatingDisorderAwarenessWeek we'd like to share Keira's story: https://www.pdasociety.org.uk/resources/keiras-story/

Keira is 17 and currently doing very well after a 10 year struggle with an eating disorder and difficulties related to her PDA profile not being understood or supported by health and social care. Her story illustrates the life-changing impact when professionals adapt their practice to be person-centred and PDA-friendly.

Sharon Donaldson, director of the specialist eating disorder unit where Keira was an in-patient, also shares how she and her team worked with Keira and her family to develop the personalised, holistic approach which was so key to achieving a successful outcome, and is now being shared with others as an example of best practice.

I am a counseling graduate student looking to pursue a career working with individuals struggling with eating disorders or disordered eating behaviors. As part of my program, I am conducting research with one of my professors.

We are currently looking for participants for our study!

We are conducting an interview study entitled, "Understanding Resilient Adults with Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating".

Essentially, we aim for this interview to be an empowering experience where adults can share their lived experiences, their resilience, and what could have been better in the counseling process or other healthcare services. Below is our flyer, and we are IRB approved through Rider University!
A good reminder that what we say and how we act matters!

β€œNew research suggests that children experience size awareness and size shaming as young as three years old, and that if left unchecked, it can lead to the development of an eating disorder.” National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA)
