Happy National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) Week 2019 everyone! NEDA Week 2019 is from February 25th-March 3rd and I’m super excited. This year’s theme is “come as you are”. I will be making a post later this week about what that theme means to me so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I wanted to post a list of some of my and my friends’ favorite eating disorder and recovery resources. These are websites, nonprofit organizations, and books that myself and some of my friends highly recommend checking out. If you or someone you know is looking for information on eating disorders, recovery, and intuitive eating, these are some resources that might be helpful. The links I will be using for the books are Amazon links. All other links go directly to the organizations’ personal websites.
These resources have been incredibly helpful to my friends and I and we hope they help you all too. If there are any more you feel I should add, please don’t hesitate to comment below or contact me! I’d love to know what other recovery resources have helped y’all.
