February 26 - March 4 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW), and the focus this year is on getting screened. The earlier an eating disorder is recognized and treatment begins, the better chance there is for a full recovery. For some, getting screened is their first step toward a life free of an eating disorder.

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental disorder, and 30 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life. Eating disorders are complex potentially life-threatening bio-psycho-social illnesses, not lifestyle choices. They profoundly impact not only those who are ill, but also their friends, family, and the whole community.
