Information for Parents

Being a parent of someone with an eating disorder can be terrifying, especially when your child has gone off to college.  The National Eating Disorders Association has created a useful Parent Toolkit that has information and resources you may find helpful.

Treatment Resources

  • The Elisa Project offers a Treatment Access Program that can help with obtaining health insurance coverage and provide grants. They also offer treatment resources, recovery support groups and one-on-one mentorship. 
  • Project Heal provides case management services to gain access to care, treatment resources, education and advocacy for eating disorder recovery.
