ONLINE HELP SOURCES

Many sites have been emerging on the Internet in order to combat the rising pro-anorexia web sites. These sites' mission statement is to provide a healthy environment for individuals who want to seek help; either for themselves or for a loved one.

Within the web sites are links to professional doctors and organizations that specialize in eating disorders. At usatoday.com there is a listing of support groups that is helpful no matter what area the individual is from.

The Concerned Counseling Eating Disorders Website offers support for surviors of an eating disorder and their families. It offers testimonies of the victims of eating disorders and the families they left behind. Communities like this one can assist in our society gaining awareness of the severity of this disease.
