The Ohio State University has many resources available to students struggling with eating disorders and co-occurring mental health concerns.
The Eating Disorder Treatment Team is a collaborative effort among the Student Health Services, Student Wellness Center, and Counseling and Consultation Service to meet the growing need for eating disorder services on campus. This team of registered dietitians, counselors, and medical and mental health professionals provides outpatient care and referrals for those who need a higher level of care. You can call the Counseling and Consultation Service at 614-292-5766 to set up your first session today.
Project HEAL at The Ohio State University is a student-run chapter of the national organization that raises funds to provide scholarships for eating disorder treatment. Founded in April 2015, this chapter hosted its first annual gala in February 2015. The more than $12,000 raised will go to a deserving recipient in need of treatment. If you are interested in supporting this important cause or getting involved in any way, email [email protected] or donate here.
Another student organization on campus with a focus on eating disorder advocacy and body positivity is Body Sense. For more information, email [email protected]
