Hope for Recovery

by Catherine Brown and Christina Tinker

The statistics regarding eating disorders are staggering. 30 million people in the U.S. alone suffer from eating disorders and every 62 minutes, a person dies as a direct result of an eating disorder. In fact, there is a higher mortality rate from eating disorders than from any other mental illness.

Co-editors Catherine Brown, a writer, and Christina Tinker, corporate storyteller and courage cultivator, are among the 60% of people who have recovered from eating disorders. To help others who struggle, they have co-edited and contributed to a compilation of essays by women and men who have recovered from eating disorders, including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder.

The book’s diverse essays emphasize each writer’s journey to recovery, providing hope for individuals suffering with an eating disorder and their loved ones. In addition to these highly personal, vulnerable essays, the book includes informative sections with insights from mental health professionals on topics such as how families can help loved ones affected by eating disorders and males with eating disorders.
