As a result of the pandemic over the last two and a half years, there has been an increase in mental stress and thus an increase in the number of people suffering from eating disorders. We would like to encourage you, especially in these difficult times, and support you a bit in the processing of your request. We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your trust!

 

 

 

 

Our aims

 

  • to improve the psychosocial situation of sufferers and their relatives,
  • to break down individual and social prejudices against sufferers from Eating Disorders,
  • to enhance public understanding of eating disorders and identify those socio-cultural factors that may contribute to the onset of an eating disorder such as social “slimming-pressure”, women’s role in society, controversial role-expectations on girls and young women, and to help to change these factors,
  • to achieve a more adequate treatment for sufferers,
  • to increase quantity and improve quality of treatment and self-help offers; the orientation at the state of the art research in the sense of an evidence-based therapeutic acting concerning aetiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of Eating Disorders has to be global priority!
