Eating Disorders Awareness Week
Eating Disorders Awareness Week is fast approaching, and we have lots of activities happening and digital resources to help you mark the week!
This year we’re focussing on Binge Eating Disorder, an often-misunderstood illness that 1 in 50 of us will experience in our lifetime.
Binge eating disorder workshops
We’re running two online workshops aimed at education and healthcare professionals. The workshops will provide attendees with an opportunity to:
- Increase your knowledge of binge eating disorder and the impact it can have
- Dispel any misconceptions associated with the illness
- Learn about the risk factors and early warning signs
Plus much, much more. Attendance at the workshops is free.

You’ll hear from Beat Ambassadors about their journey to eating disorder recovery as they bring to light the realities of living with and recovering from an eating disorder.
Here’s your digital toolkit for Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2021! In it you will find digital resources that can be added your social media channels and websites, alongside information to help people understand binge eating disorder.
We’ve also created some videos that can be shared on social media:
