Eating Disorder Support in Partnership with Project Heal
If 80% of people with eating disorders can’t access treatment, something isn’t working.
On top of an already broken system, the current COVID-19 pandemic is creating conditions that increase eating disorder risk and exacerbate barriers to care, specifically for marginalized communities.
In 2020, 100% of Project HEAL's applicants reported being directly affected by COVID-19, whether by new/worsened eating disorder behaviors or by job/income/insurance loss. In addition, 30% are LGBTQ+ folks, 15% are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color, and a staggering 92% of people who come to Project HEAL for support have another marginalized identity in the eating disorder space (not underweight, not cis female, older than 24, disabled, or undocumented).
