Participating Organisations

Listed below are the organisation and thought leaders participating actively in World Eating Disorders Action Day 2016! Over 3000 activists are participating through our social media platforms.

Addition of new Participating Organizations is temporarily closed for 2016.  We will be reconnecting soon for 2017.  Thank your interest.

The following organisations are nonprofit groups focused on advocacy, research, education and support.  The groups have all agreed to the Participation Principles and are sharing the key messages for World Eating Disorders Action Day on their respective platforms.   

NB:  World Eating Disorders Action Day recognises the interest and desire of for-profit treatment centers, clinicians and programs to support affected people in efforts for advocacy and policy change, and that groups have aligned with the Key Messages for June 2. At the same time, the Steering Committee of World Eating Disorders Action Day does not recommend or endorse a particular center or system.  Being listed on the World Eating Disorders Action Day website or following and supporting on social media is in no way an endorsement of the provider.  We recommend persons and families in need of treatment services undertake research to determine the appropriate provider and approach; we strongly recommend consulting peer reviewed literature, looking at outcomes data and seeking client recommendations.
