Eating Disorders Advocacy Day
Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. Advocates for those dealing with the disease gathered at the South Carolina State House. Because it affects so many families in our state, the South Carolina Eating Disorders Association wants legislators to know the majority of those with an eating disorder will not get treatment because of the stigma, lack of education, not being diagnosed, or lack of insurance coverage. Representative Beth Bernstein and Senator Katrina Shealy helped bring awareness to lawmakers by recognizing the SC Eating Disorders Association.
