EATING DISORDERS HAVE THE HIGHEST MORTALITY RATE OF ALL MENTAL ILLNESSES
10 MILLION MEN & 20 MILLION WOMEN DEVELOP AN EATING DISORDER AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIVES
1/2 OF TEEN GIRLS & 1/3 OF TEEN BOYS USE UNHEALTHY WEIGHT CONTROL BEHAVIORS
“I have always felt that eating disorders suffer the most persistent discrimination within the mental health community in both insurance coverage and research funding. I commend NEDA for raising awareness to these issues and for setting the stage for progress.”
- FORMER CONGRESSMAN PATRICK J. KENNEDY
NEDA WALKS ARE EDUCATING AFFECTED INDIVIDUALS AND THEIR FAMILIES, WHILE RAISING VITAL FUNDS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST EATING DISORDERS.
HELP US CREATE LOCAL COMMUNITIES OF PASSIONATE ADVOCATES TO SUPPORT THOSE ON THE PATH TO RECOVERY.
“Because recovery is real.”
“No one should feel alone.”
“Together we can make a difference.”
NEDA supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders, and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care.
FOR THE FOURTH YEAR IN A ROW, NEDA HAS EARNED THE 4-STAR CHARITY RATING FROM CHARITY NAVIGATOR - A DISTINCTION ONLY 8% OF NONPROFITS CAN CLAIM
PASSIONATE FUNDRAISERS FORM THE BACKBONE OF THE NEDA WALKS PROGRAM. WE ARE SO APPRECIATIVE OF YOUR EFFORTS! SO, THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE WAYS WE WOULD LIKE TO SAY, “THANK YOU.”
