Eating Disorders Are Not A Choice

 

 

 

 

This excellent short video compiling interviews with people affected by eating disorders as well as clinicians, drives home the point that eating disorders are not a choice.

The well-produced video made by Sheena’s Place, a Toronto eating disorders support centre, also makes the point that eating disorders affect a diverse range of people of all ages, genders, and sizes.

This is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, a good time to share messages that inform about the realities of eating disorders and do some mythbusting. For more information, please visit the National Eating Disorders Information Centre (NEDIC).
