According to the National Eating Disorders Association, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. With at least 30 million people of all ages and genders suffering from an eating disorder in the U.S., the workplace plays an important role in either helping or harming employees struggling with or in recovery from an eating disorder.
In this FREE webinar, Center for Health, Work & Environment's Amanda Kujawa shares her personal story of being diagnosed, treated for, and in recovery from an eating disorder and the role the workplace has served on that journey. She will be joined by Sabrina Scanga, program director at The Eating Disorder Foundation, to present the skills and tools you need to create a culture that supports employees who may be struggling with food, exercise, and body image.
