The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness

The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness (The Alliance) was created, in October 2000, as a source of community outreach, education, awareness, and prevention of the various eating disorders currently plaguing our nation. Our aim is to share the message that recovery from these disorders is possible, and that individuals should not have to suffer or recover alone. We seek to educate individuals about the dangers of this epidemic and to reduce the rate and severity of eating disorders among people of all ages.

The Alliance strives to promote healthy body image, aid and empower those currently struggling, and instill a sense of self-love, self-acceptance, and self confidence in all those we reach out to. The Alliance offers various programs and services both across Florida and nationwide. It also advocates for change in eating disorders/mental health legislation both on a local, state and federal level.

Since its inception, The Alliance has offered presentations on eating disorders and their prevention to more than 150,000 individuals nationwide and internationally. Through presentations, workshops, phone and email support, eating disorders treatment referrals, support groups, and informational packets, The Alliance offers opportunities for individuals to receive the information they need free of charge.

The Alliance is a proud Leadership Circle member of the Eating Disorders Coalition, Florida team leader for NEDA’s STAR program, and major contributor to Screening for Mental Health, Eating Disorder Screening Program.
