February 1-7 is Eating Disorder Awareness Week in Canada. The Provincial Eating Disorders Awareness (PEDAW) campaign promotes awareness of eating disorders (prevention, treatment, and resources) and works to help individuals attain a healthy body image and lifestyle. On Friday, February 6th make sure to wear purple to show your support and check out some local structures that will be turning purple for the day!
I struggled with eating disorders and disordered eating for over a decade, so this cause hits home. I plan on decking myself out in purple attire for the day… will you join me?
