Ohio Psychological Association Partners with Columbus State Community College for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week
Date:3/2/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) March 02, 2013

The Ohio Psychological Association (OPA) is taking part in the National Eating Disorders Association’s (NEDA) 26th annual National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAwareness Week). This annual awareness campaign runs Feb. 24 - March 2, to bring public attention to the critical needs of people with eating disorders and their families.

On Monday, February 25, OPA and Columbus State Community College partnered to sponsor a screening of the documentary "Someday Melissa," which features a young woman and her struggles with bulimia. After the documentary screening, a panel discussion was held featuring three survivors of eating disorders and two OPA psychologists, Dr. Jeannine Tell and Dr. Heather Guthrie. Over 100 students attended the event, and feedback was overwhelmingly positive regarding the increased understanding of eating disorders and the impact on the individual, friends and family.

Mary Lewis, PhD, chair of OPA’s Committee on Social Responsibility moderated the panel. "The work of the CSCC Counseling Center, Student Engagement and Leadership and OPA created an effective event that appears to have influenced many students’ lives and understanding of eating disorders," Dr. Lewis said.

During NEDAwareness Week, thousands of people come together in communities across the country, hosting events to raise awareness about body image and bring national attention to the severity of eating disorders, which are bio-psycho-social illnesses with potentially devastating, sometimes life-threatening, consequences. While there is hope and recovery is possible – particularly with early intervention – many people suffer from the long-term effects of these illnesses.

Research and NEDA program outcomes have demonstrated that education and outreach leads to increases in the number of individuals who seek help and support for an eating disorder.
