Information and awareness
On this website you’ll find educational documents and tools designed to:
- Help the public better understand eating disorders and the reality experienced by ED sufferers and their friends and families.
- Debunk the myths and address the taboos associated with this type of mental illness.
- Explain the preferred attitudes and behaviours to adopt with an ED sufferer.
We encourage you to explore, download and share these tools.
Support and sharing
EDAW is a time to think about how we can best support and communicate with a person suffering from an eating disorder.
During the week, ED sufferers and their friends and families will have many opportunities to express their emotions, difficulties and concerns with regard to disordered eating.
A far-reaching event – because eating disorders can affect anyone.
Eating Disorders Awareness Week is a major event that takes place under the auspices of Anorexia and Bulimia Québec (ANEB) and Maison l’Éclaircie, with the collaboration of many partners in the private, hospital and community sectors. Its purpose is to raise public awareness about the illness and the challenges it presents.
The week will feature various events during which spokespeople for ANEB (including actors Catherine Brunet and Félix-Antoine Tremblay) and Maison l’Éclaircie (actor, speaker and TV host Jean-Marie Lapointe), along with many experts, will talk about the biases and taboos associated with disordered eating. This year, the organizations involved in the fight against EDs want to remind people that eating disorders are complex illnesses requiring specialized interdisciplinary care (psychological, medical, etc.).
