Welcome to EDH!
We’re Glad You’re Here.
Eating Disorder Hope ™ is an online community that offers resources, education, support, and inspiration to those struggling with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, body image issues, and a myriad of other disordered eating behaviors. We understand that the person fighting disordered eating behaviors is not the only one suffering. This disease is affecting the whole family.
We seek to offer help and support to the sufferer and also the family members seeking to become better informed and proactive in their efforts to help their loved one. This is why Eating Disorder Hope ™ was created so those suffering can find the help, care, support, and resources to help themselves and their loved ones.
Our resources include thousands of blogs and articles by therapists, doctors, psychiatrists, and other leaders in the field. We offer many educational videos by important leaders in the field of behavioral health. Eating Disorder Hope ™ freely provides access to disordered eating treatment options, support groups, recovery tools, treatment programs, and so much more. We delve deeply into topics such as athletes, relationship skills, marriage, coping skills, and co-occurring issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and OCD. For addiction treatment issues please visit our sister site Addiction Hope.
Our History & Mission
In January of 2005, Jacquelyn Ekern, LPC, Founder and President of Eating Disorder Hope ™ created and developed this informative website with the help and advice of colleagues, professors, psychiatrists, and other relevant organizations. Our ultimate goal is to freely provide access to as much valuable information as possible that can help a loved one recover from the disease of disordered eating behaviors.
Our goal is to offer all of this valuable information in one place where the hope and support of ending disordered eating behaviors is encouraged. We also promote the healing and embracing of life while pursuing full and complete recovery from anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and other forms of disordered eating.
The Eating Disorder Hope ™ mission is to foster an appreciation of a person’s uniqueness and true value in the world. We want those struggling with disordered eating to learn that their worth is not related to their appearance, achievement or praise.
