At least 30 million Americans are struggling with an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating. For nearly 45 years, ANAD (National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders) has been here to help. We are the leading nonprofit in the U.S. providing free, peer support services to anyone struggling with an eating disorder.
ANAD’s mission of providing free, peer support services is critical. Due to the pandemic, people are experiencing more anxiety and food-related triggers, whether or not they’ve had a history of an eating disorder. Accessing professional treatment has also become more challenging. That’s why we’re working to serve 250 people every week and hope to double that number by 2022. Your donation will help make that possible.
I was desperate for as much support as possible after I was discharged from inpatient treatment last year. I am grateful to have found ANAD’s Peer Support Mentorship Program and for the care taken in making my match. We connected immediately on a level that was unexpected and extraordinary.MarissaANAD Beneficiary
Becoming a Peer Support Mentor was one of the most meaningful choices I have ever made in my life. My deep and immediate connection with my mentee began a journey that is leading to a lifelong friendship. I am so grateful that ANAD brought us together.ChrisANAD Volunteer
ANAD has been an instrumental piece of my recovery journey. ANAD's support groups have been a lifeline for me. Whether online or in person, knowing that I can talk to others in the same situation gives me the resolve to keep going. I can't thank ANAD enough for the difference they have made for me.NicoleANAD Beneficiary
