“To help shine a light on eating disorders and the negative impact they can have on people, Body Brave is encouraging community members to engage in its letter-writing campaign. Dubbed Brave Letters, people are encouraged to write to Canadian politicians and demand support for community based treatments so people can access the help they need.”

“One of the toughest parts, Pinelli said, is that was their disorder progressed, people would say how much better they looked. Then after a certain point, people began to ask if they were sick or unwell. They started to avoid those people and avoided their hometown.”
