Are you struggling with an eating disorder? Have you or someone you care about struggled to find care for an eating disorder? The Eating Disorders Workgroup, chaired by the Department of Mental Health, wants to hear from you.
According to Vermont state officials, hospitalization for eating disorders grew 50% between 2016 – 2019, and skyrocketed nationwide during the pandemic.
At a virtual meeting Monday, November 28 at 10 AM you can share your experiences with seeking and receiving care for you or a loved one. We also welcome your suggestions for improving treatment options in Vermont. Your input will be shared with Vermont’s health care providers, lawmakers, and school systems.
For a link to the meeting invite or more information, visit The Eating Disorder Workgroup webpage.
There you will find:
- Information about the workgroup and its charge
- A calendar of future meetings, links to join the sessions, and upcoming agendas
- Past meeting minutes, including a list of recommendations created by the workgroup so far.
If you cannot join us on November 28th, you can share your thoughts with the Department at AHS.DMHCommunications@vermont.gov. All communications will remain confidential unless you provide permission to use your name.
