The Eating Recovery Foundation is dedicated to expanding awareness, prevention and effective treatments of eating disorders through the support of education, research, and charitable care programs.
It is essential that patients, families, and professionals have the tools to foster prevention, early intervention and a lasting recovery from this devastating disease.
The Eating Disorders Information Gateway
The Eating Disorders Information Gateway is a single portal resource where patients, families, treatment professionals and the general public can access information and research on eating disorder prevention, treatment and recovery. The Gateway shares over 19,845 indexed resources.
The Body Project
The Body Project is an evidence-based intervention program that has been proven to disrupt concepts of ideal body image and reduce onset of eating disorders on college campuses, where one in four students suffers from an eating disorder. The Foundation has brought this outreach and prevention program to 25 college campuses across North America, including CU, CSU, and University of Colorado–Colorado Springs, and plans to expand these efforts in 2017.
Despite being the deadliest mental illness, the eating disorders research base is limited compared to other biologically based mental illnesses, contributing to lack of awareness and delayed diagnosis and intervention among professionals and the general public alike.
Young Investigator Award
Few students in mental health medical disciplines are exposed to eating disorders as a specialty during their training and education. In an effort to encourage more future thought leaders to enter this field, the Foundation seeks to foster young academics and practitioners through research grants in the area of eating disorders. Young investigators will research best treatment protocols for eating disorders.
Everyone touched by an eating disorder deserves support, treatment, and lasting recovery.
Charitable Care Fund
The Charitable Care Fund is designed to make recovery accessible and attainable for patients and families without financial means, providing support beyond what is covered by insurance. To date, over 135 patient episodes of care have been funded through this Charitable Care Fund.
The Eating Recovery Foundation is actively recruiting new board members. We are looking for board candidates with a willingness to serve as an ambassador and fundraiser for the Foundation, have a passion for helping others learn more about eating disorders, and a connection to prospective partners.
