A Reminder of How Serious Eating Disorders Are

By February 23, 2012

Follow me on:

I ran across this news story on  BBC News today, detailing how SNP MSP Dennis Robertson, is currently promoting awareness of eating disorders in the UK due to his own daughters struggle and subsequent death last year from anorexia.

Anorexia Nervosa is often considered the deadliest mental illness and this is a stark and sad reminder of that. Next week is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week in the United States. What will you do to promote awareness, treatment and recovery?
