National Eating Disorders Awareness Week!

Realize Your Beauty is thrilled to be partnering with the 
National Eating Disorders Association for this year's Awareness Week (NEDAW)
Feb. 24th-March 4th

We are very honored to have been interviewed for this important PSA:


 

The goal of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW) is to promote public and media attention to the seriousness of eating disorders and improve education about the biological underpinnings, environmental triggers, warning signs and how to help those struggling. Education and direction to resources can lead to earlier detection, intervention, and help seeking, ultimately improving likelihood of full recovery. 

This year's theme is It's Time to Talk About It. From NEDAW's website:

"Spearheaded by the National Eating Disorders Association, the goal of National Eating Disorders Awareness (#NEDAwareness) Week is to shine the spotlight on eating disorders and put life-saving resources into the hands of those in need. This year’s theme is It’s Time to Talk About It and we’re encouraging everyone to get screened. 

It’s time we take eating disorders seriously as public health concerns. It’s time we bust the myths and get the facts. It’s time to celebrate recovery and the heroes who make it possible. It’s time to take action and fight for change. It’s time to shatter the stigma and increase access to care. It’s Time to Talk About It!"
