Does Your Friend Have An Eating Disorder?
You see your friend differently than a family member does. That’s probably why you’re friends! But that also means you know when things aren’t quite right anymore. If you think your friend might have an eating disorder, you’ve come to the right place. The Emily Program works with people of all ages to make peace with food. Tell your friend to call us at (888) 364-5977 or show your friend our website. We’re here to help.
Three Ways To Help A Friend With An Eating Disorder
Take our Eating Disorder Assessment Quiz
Our Eating Disorder Assessment Quiz has just six questions. It’s a simple tool that helps you to see whether or not you should be concerned. Take the quiz.
Talk with your friend
Your friend’s health is more important than keeping secrets or shying away from talking to his or her family. Share your concerns. Be prepared to provide examples of behaviors that alerted you to the problem. And offer the next step—tell your friend to call us at 1-888-EMILY-77 (1-888-364-5977) or show your friend our website to start the journey to healthy living.
