Held Online

In recognizing National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (led by NEDA), February 21 – February 27, 2022, The Renfrew Center is sponsoring its annual support campaign. Our theme this year, Live Your REEL REAL Life, acknowledges the fact that social media is often referred to as a highlight reel. Posts on platforms like Instagram, TikTok and Facebook tend to depict only the perfect moments of our lives rather than portraying the full picture.

Join us for a variety of events throughout the week, including an open dialogue about how social media makes us feel about ourselves. Attendees will receive advice on how to stop “doing it for the ‘Gram” and start living life on their own terms.
