Preventing Eating Disorders
Best practice communication and targeted programs are key to helping prevent the development of eating disorders and reduce stigma and ignorance.
Effective communication serves to influence social norms, beliefs and behaviours, and is key to bringing about change.
Do No Harm
Care must be taken in promoting information about eating disorders in order to ensure positive outcomes, rather than accidental harm.
Eating disorders are often misunderstood and underestimated in our society, resulting in the use of inaccurate reporting and language with a potentially negative impact.
