As we get closer to Eating Disorders Awareness Week, Ben Gordon Center encourages that you share your concern to your loved one who you think might have an eating disorder. When you confront someone with an eating disorder, you begin to break down the walls of denial and secrecy and allow the person to accept help. Be a voice, not an echo, to the person who needs you the most.
Be honest and straight forward, and make sure you are not accusing them of doing something wrong. Look into possible treatment options so you can provide them with the information and offer to help them make that first phone call.
