This week is Eating Disorders Awareness week.
There are lots of preconceptions about eating disorders and what type of person struggles with them, but eating disorders can affect anyone. No question.
BEAT is the UK’s eating disorder charity and their Eating Disorder Awareness campaign for this year is focusing on breaking down these preconceptions. Their research has found that this stigma can stop people finding help and they want to make sure everyone knows where to go if they're struggling, and that you're not alone.
