The Impact of COVID-19
We have had overwhelming demand with over one thousand individuals reaching out for help. Time on a waitlist has a negative impact and has been shown to increase the duration and impact of an eating disorder. You can help us provide more treatment programs for more people so that no one has to wait for essential, timely care.
