Welcome to Eating Disorder Hope ™!
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.
Whether a person struggles with bulimia, anorexia, body image distortion, orthorexia, binge-eating disorders, or ARFID, help is available for you. You are welcome here whether you are just beginning to explore this topic to those in relapse after many years of recovery. We get it and want you to find the trustworthy information, resources and help you need to find healing and well-being. We devote sections of our website to specific audiences seeking to delve deeper into this complex behavioral health issue. We address important topics such as unique considerations for treatment of adolescents, college students, infertility and pregnancy, type-A career-driven individuals and more.
We closely examine the benefits of cognitive behavior therapy, dialectic behavior therapy, mindfulness, ACT, and other experiential therapies that are helpful in recovery.
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.
