February 22nd to 28th marks National Eating Disorder Awareness Week: a time to learn about eating disorders and get involved by raising awareness. The theme of this year’s #NEDAwareness Week is I had no idea–too often, early warning signs are overlooked when in fact they may be indications of eating disorders.
In this uplifting video, former Children’s Hospital Colorado patient Katie tells of her experience living with an eating disorder, describing her early, unnoticed symptoms, and how dance/movement therapy assisted in her recovery.
