Our Mission & Vision

OUR MISSION

To be trailblazers on the path to ending eating disorders – investing where the need is greatest and the outcomes most profound.


OUR VISION

Our vision is healthy lives, free from eating disorders.


OUR PURPOSE

With success, our work will impact the following truths:

  • Eating disorders are the leading cause of death for 17 – 24 year old women in North America.
  • There is no known single cause, nor cure.
  • The facts behind eating disorders are widely misunderstood, creating a stigma that shadows everything to do with the disease.
  • An eating disorder is a mental illness that targets destruction of the family unit.
  • Early treatment is, so far, the best defense we have against its long-term effects.
  • And yet, the public healthcare system drastically under-funds eating disorders, creating insufficient capacity that perpetuates the crisis.
