Anorexia is a touchy subject for me because my younger sister struggled with it starting at a very young age.
This psychological and life-threatening eating disorder can be triggered by the "thin culture" promoted on social media that constantly reinforce thin people as ideal stereotypes, family and childhood trauma, and peer pressure among friends and co-workers to be "thin".
Anorexia Nervosa has the highest mortality rate of any mental health issue. The physical dangers of starvation and the consequences of declining mental and physical health are numerous.
The best thing you can do to help a friend or anyone facing Anorexia is to direct them to the help they need while being supportive in the recovery journey.
