EDANZ: Helping the helpers

EDANZ is run by parents, caregivers, and people who have fully recovered from eating disorders. Although we don’t have medical qualifications, we’ve experienced the challenges of eating disorders in real life. 

We offer support, help and resources to people caring for loved ones with an eating disorder, but we are not able to offer treatment or medical advice for patients themselves. If you have, or are concerned you have an eating disorder, we urge you to visit your GP. Click here for advice on speaking to your GP for the first time.

If you need advice about someone you care about, get in touch now.
