Beat is the UK’s eating disorder charity. Its aims are simple: to change the way everyone thinks and talks about eating disorders; to improve the way services and treatments are provided; and to help anyone believe that their eating disorder can be overcome. They provide information and support via helplines, message boards and online support groups. Check out their HelpFinder, too - an online directory where you can find eating disorder services near you.
