Eating Concerns Awareness Week
Eating Concerns Awareness Week is brought to you by Eating Concerns Mentors, a Health Services peer education group. This awareness week corresponds to National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, a national campaign of the National Eating Disorder Association.Campus events and activities are designed to help raise awareness about eating concerns.
Eating concerns and disorders don’t discriminate. Anyone can suffer—the highest mortality rate of any mental health disease and has one of the lowest funding for research. More than 30 million people in the US suffer from an eating disorder and that number is expected to be much higher due to many people who live in silence with an eating disorder. Join us in raising awareness about eating disorders at UNH.
