Eating disorders can’t be identified by someone’s size, shape or gender.

Help and recovery from an eating disorder is possible. 

To start the help and recovery process, you can:

Speak to someone you trust

Speaking to someone you trust is a good first step. You can talk to a friend, family member, teacher or counsellor. You should also consider speaking to a professional, like a doctor. You can discuss your concerns and ask them to help you or support you in seeking help.

Speak to a professional

GPs, doctors and other medical professionals, like therapists, can all help you take the first step towards coping with your problem. If you’re unsure where to begin – try your local GP or your school counsellor. You could also call a helpline.
