Families Empowered and Supporting Treatment for Eating Disorders (F.E.A.S.T.)
We are a global community of parents, and those who support parents. We know what it is to have a precious son or daughter develop an eating disorder. We have known the worry, the fear, the frustration. Many of us have seen our loved ones go from terribly unwell to robustly healthy. Some among us are supporting longtime sufferers who have not reached full recovery. And some of us have lost our beloved children to their illnesses, through permanent estrangement or death.
This community knows the hope and the tragedy of these dangerous brain disorders. We also know the heroic power of families: parents and siblings and sufferers and recovered people. We know the power of care giving, of loving support, of skilled clinicians, and of applying the emerging science to improve outcomes.
F.E.A.S.T. started back in 2007, formally, when we became a recognized nonprofit. Our volunteers and our board of directors formed originally from an online community of parents around the world connected by our common experience of loving and supporting sons and daughters who have suffered from eating disorders, and their siblings.
