What does real RECOVERY look like?

The National Eating Disorders Association and the PBS program This Emotional Life have co-produced a webinar on eating disorder recovery.  The webinar, which runs for 60 minutes, is hosted by NEDA CEO Lynn Grefe and features helpful discussion with both males and females with eating disorder experience, together with professionals, on the definition of RECOVERY.  There is also interesting discussion on prevention of eating disorders.

You are not alone – reach out for help and support
Wherever you are, please know that you are not alone in your struggle with an eating disorder. The bravest step you can take is to reach out for help. While in London for the inaugural National Family Network Day organized by the UK’s largest non-profit eating disorder association, BEAT, I spoke with two women whose organizations offer online support to families around the world every day.
They are BEAT chief executive Susan Ringwood of b-eat (left)and Laura Collins (right), eating disorder parent activist and executive director of F.E.A.S.T.

About June Alexander

As founder of The Diary Healer my prime motivation is to connect with people who have experienced an eating disorder, trauma or other mental health challenge, and provide inspiration through the narrative, to live a full and meaningful life. My nine books about eating disorders focus on learning through story-sharing. Prior to writing books, which include my memoir, I had a long career in print journalism. In 2017, I graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy (Creative Writing), researching the usefulness of journaling and writing when recovering from an eating disorder or other traumatic experience.
Today I combine my writing expertise with life experience to help others self-heal. Clients receive mentoring in narrative techniques and guidance in memoir-writing. I also share my editing expertise with people who are writing their story and wish to prepare it to publication standard. I encourage everyone to write their story. Your story counts!
