Eating Disorders Awareness Week: 1st - 7th March
Though eating disorders are often portrayed as illnesses that affect females, they can and do affect anyone irrespective of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, or ethnicity. We are here to support any and all students who may be struggling.
If you are struggling with eating issues we encourage you to seek help and support. Our Student Counselling and Mental Health Advice Service offer a non-judgemental space for students to speak about any concerns with their eating and weight.
