Beth spent 10 years hiding eating disorders from everyone around her. After reaching out to a family member, she found help in therapy, the formal mental heath system, and in connecting with people who has been through eating disorders. This is Beth’s story of her road to recovery, which started with accepting that she couldn’t fix things on her own.
Eating disorders are serious, complex mental illnesses that can impact anyone. With support and treatment, full recovery is possible.
