This week marks the National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. It is an initiative run by the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) to shine a light on stories of people struggling with an unhealthy relationship to food and our bodies. Although very rarely discussed in the open, eating disorders affect over 9% of the population worldwide.
In March 2020, the Covid-19 Mental Health Relief Committee (made up of therapists from Central Minds), partnered with Mind HK to launch the Covid-19 Mental Health Relief Scheme, offering short term pro-bono mental health support to individuals in need.
As the pandemic continues and mandatory quarantine requirements and restrictions are continuously changing, we have now created a self help guide for individuals to work through at their own pace.
