Research studies have established consistent links between social media use and body dissatisfaction, disordered eating, depression, and anxiety. Can we engage with social media in a way that helps rather than hurts us?

In honor of Eating Disorders Awareness Week, join us to learn what it means to be social media literate, and get the tools needed to spot sneaky messages that can strengthen eating disorder urges. Learn what behaviors on social media might be negatively impacting your mental health and increase the connection and positivity within your virtual spaces. Receive a free Social Media Checklist to practice mindful awareness and sharpen your ability to identify harmful content while scrolling.

The Renfrew Center is proud to join other eating disorder organizations throughout the country to celebrate Eating Disorders Awareness Week, held February 27 – March 5, 2023. Our theme this year, We’ve Got the Power, aims to acknowledge the effects of societal pressures to look or live a certain way. Learn more about our campaign as well as other events here.
