Given that some 1.5 million Canadians are affected by EDs and that they’re one of our deadliest mental health issues, it’s unfathomable that EDs aren’t getting more government attention — and is one thing that’s absolutely gotta give if we’re going to really get to the other side of eating disorders. We are in dire need of funding for ED research, prevention, and treatment. Our two-tiered healthcare is a disgraceful injustice for those suffering from EDs. Our provincial and federal governments’ failure to make EDs a priority is part of why this disease continues to escalate. The time for action is now.
