The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness
help. support. recovery.
The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness is a national non-profit organization dedicated to the outreach, education, early intervention, support, and advocacy for all eating disorders. Founded in October 2000, The Alliance has worked tirelessly to raise awareness; eliminate secrecy and stigma; promote access to care; and support those susceptible to, currently struggling with, and recovered from eating disorders. We create a bridge for those needing and seeking help by connecting people with resources to assist them in recovery.
The Alliance offers comprehensive services, including: educational presentations in communities across the country; free, weekly, therapist-led support groups nationwide (in-person and virtual) for those struggling and for their loved ones; support and referrals through both our free help-line and comprehensive referral website, www.findEDhelp.com; unique and empowering scale smashing events and SmashTALK panel discussions nationwide; and advocacy for eating disorders and mental health legislation. In September 2017, The Alliance opened Psychological Services, which offers direct, low-cost, life-saving treatment to underinsured and uninsured adults in our community. Since its inception, The Alliance has offered presentations on eating disorders and positive body image to communities nationwide. Over the past 20 years, we have demonstrated our tireless commitment to making a positive impact on our community.
WHY TREATS AND SWEETS
A Message from Nancy Richter, Chair
Our committee and bakers are proud to support an organization that dedicates time, effort, and energy to help those in need within our community and nationwide. The Alliance actively strives to eliminate the shame and stigma associated with eating disorders and increase the awareness that all foods, including sweets, are good in moderation.
