Disordered
Eating

NEDA (National Eating Disorder Association) is an organization dedicated to helping individual's struggling with eating disorders. They have created a short screening tool on their website; accessible by the 'Let's Try It' button below.

The chance for recovery increases the earlier an unhealthy relationship with food is detected. If you find yourself struggling with disordered eating or body image this module is merely a starting point to begin working on yourself and discovering that life does not have to be ruled by what is on your plate.
