“The Way Ahead” Virtual Event hosted by the National Initiative for Eating Disorders – June 2/2022

“The Way Ahead” Virtual Event 

hosted by the National Initiative for Eating Disorders

June 2nd from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. EST

As NIED celebrates a 10-year milestone as a leader fostering Awareness, Understanding & Action for Eating Disorders in Canada, this event will shine a light on how young adults can get involved in spreading awareness, understanding and action about Eating Disorders.

We hope that the passion and commitment shown by so many young adults will continue to ignite change. We know that the next generation is stepping up, and this event will highlight some of the impacts that can be achieved when one young adult, or team, with a vision, takes action to make things happen.

The following teams will be presenting:

  • Kirsten Moore Towers, an Olympian Pairs Figure Skater; a Clinical Psychologist who is the Mental Health Lead, Athletics Canada;
  • A group of 4 young researchers from McMaster University;
  • Representatives from Frayme’s Groundbreakers network of youth, caregivers, and advocates aiming to transform Canada’s youth mental health and substance use system;
  • The founder of The Starving Artist and Activist;
  • The National Eating Disorders Information  Centre (NEDIC);
  • The Recovery Project Foundation, who advocate for mental health by helping to defray medical expenses for treatments of eating disorders, alongside other mental illnesses, to individuals who have a demonstrated need for financial assistance;
  • The University of Guelph Wellness Centre;
  • The New Mentality, a not-for-profit network of youth and adult allies working together to Disable the Label of mental illness;
  • Body Brave, charitable organization who through treatment, training and education, work to end the suffering Eating Disorders cause; and,
  • The Mental Health Commission of Canada.

Each team will be given 10 minutes to talk about the way their organization is making a difference/driving change in the trajectory of those impacted by Eating Disorders;

  1. Challenging attendees to find ways they can “be the way forward”; and,
  2. Letting attendees know how they can support work done by the organizations
