UNH Eating Concerns Awareness Week
UNH Eating Concerns Awareness Week is brought to you by the Eating Concerns Mentors, a Health Services peer education group.
EATING CONCERNS AWARENESS WEEK AT UNH
FEBRUARY 21-27, 2016
Eating Concerns Awareness Week (ECAW) is a national campaign through the National Eating Disorder Association. Eating 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. Over 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.

Looking For Help? Request a UNH Eating Concerns Mentor
ECMs are trained UNH students who provide individual support around body image, eating disorders, and eating concerns. If you are a UNH student working toward recovery from an eating concern, struggling to prevent relapse from an eating concern or are questioning whether you have an eating concern, requesting an ECM may be helpful. The program is also for students concerned about a friend or family member with these issues.
Online Eating Disorder Screening
This anonymous online screening takes only a few minutes and consists of a series of questions. After completing the screening, you will receive referral information through the National Eating Disorders Association Helpline for personal evaluation by a medical professional. This is a great first step if you are concerned about your relationship with food and your body.
