Eating Disorders Awareness Week

February 26 - March 3

The 26th February marks the start of Eating Disorders Awareness Week. The week was established to raise awareness of eating disorders and to campaign for the improvement of the treatment in this field. A large part of the campaign is calling for all UK medical schools to introduce proper training on eating disorders, this type of change would improve access to treatment and break the pattern of misdiagnosis.

This year we are shining a light on a health condition that we know doesn’t always get the attention it deserves: ARFID.


ARFID stands for avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder and is a largely unknown and misunderstood eating disorder.  ARFID can have serious consequences for health if left untreated.

The number of people affected by ARFID is unknown. Treatment is not available nationwide and people with ARFID, or who suspect they may have it, struggle to access the help they need.
