Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness
The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness (The Alliance) is a non-profit organization working to prevent eating disorders and promote a positive body image, free from weight preoccupation and size prejudice. The Alliance accomplishes this through educational presentations, cutting-edge information and referral, training, advocacy, support and mentoring services.
In October of 2000, The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness (The Alliance) was created as a source of community outreach, education, awareness, and prevention of the various eating disorders currently plaguing our nation. Our aim is to share the message that recovery from these disorders is possible, and that individuals should not have to suffer or recover alone. We seek to educate individuals about the dangers of this epidemic, and to reduce the rate and severity of eating disorders among all ages.
The Alliance offers various programs and services both throughout the state of Florida and nationwide, as well as advocates for change in eating disorders legislation. Since its inception, The Alliance has offered presentations on eating disorders and their prevention to over 120,000 individuals. The Alliance strives to promote healthy body image, aid and empower those currently struggling, and instill a sense of self-love, self-acceptance, and self confidence. Through presentations, seminars, workshops, phone and email support, treatment referrals, support groups, and informational packets, The Alliance offers opportunities for individuals to receive the information they need free of charge.
