Body Image and Eating Disorders Awareness Week (BIEDAW) 2020 will take place from Sept 6 -12
This year for BIEDAW we’re highlighting all the ways that eating disorders defy the stereotypes, with the campaign theme #NotWhatYouThink. We’re especially keen to highlight the complexity of eating disorder experiences in light of COVID-19 and the impact it’s had on people experiencing eating disorders and their families. We know that everyone’s experience is unique, and that there’s so much more than meets the eye when it comes to eating disorders.
“We know how difficult this time has been for many in our community. We’ve seen a 27% increase in contacts to our Hub service, and have experienced enormous demand for our COVID related services, such as online support groups. We want everyone in our community to know this BIEDAW that we hear you, we see you, and we’re available to support you.”
