NEDIC’s work, from our life-saving helpline to prevention-based outreach and education programming, is made possible through the generosity of our donors.
Eating disorders affect people of all genders, ages, classes, abilities, races and ethnic backgrounds. These complex disorders are serious, biologically influenced illnesses — not personal choices. Recovery from an eating disorder is possible.
We operate Canada’s only national toll-free helpline and instant chat providing resources, referrals and support to people across Canada either directly or indirectly affected by disordered eating and related concerns.
With the support of corporate and community partners, NEDIC provides professional development workshops as well as targeted educational workshops for children and youth through our BodyPride program.
Outreach and education programming is available online and in the Greater Toronto Area.
NEDIC focuses on awareness and the prevention of eating disorders, food and weight preoccupation, and disordered eating by promoting critical thinking skills. Additional programs include a biennial conference and free online curricula for young people in grades 4 through 8.
The NEDIC Bulletin is published five times a year, featuring articles from professionals and researchers of diverse backgrounds. current Issue
