In the United States, as many as 10 million females and 1 million males are fighting a life and death battle with an eating disorder, which has one of the highest mortality rates of any mental illness. By recognizing the symptoms of eating disorders, and getting help, women and men can end their preoccupation with food and focus their efforts on developing healthy eating and exercise habits.
Give members of your community 24/7 access to a validated online eating disorders screening – it’s a quick 5-minute self-assessment tool designed to help individuals identify symptoms of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder. Upon completion, people get access to list of local resources for further evaluation and treatment.
Please Note: The CommunityResponse program is for organizations who wish to screen the general public. If you are an EAP or would like to provide this program for your employees, please visit the WorkplaceResponse page.
