How has the pandemic affected the availability of treatment, mental well-being and the experiences of people with eating disorders?
This session will kick-off Body Peace 2020 by sharing Body Brave’s current research and by having professionals and individuals with lived experiences discuss how we can adapt our practices and best support one another during these tumultuous times.
The session is open to all audience and community members free of cost. We hope to provide valuable insights for each stakeholder (e.g. physicians, dieticians, social workers, policy professionals, caregivers, individuals with lived experience) in the audience to consider and implement when supporting individuals with EDs during the pandemic.
