Creating eating disorders education, awareness, and treatment initiatives throughout Missouri  

The Missouri Eating Disorders Council is charged with leading eating disorders education, awareness, and treatment initiatives throughout the state, and promoting increased access to evidence-based therapies, and other treatments of proven effectiveness. The Council’s goal will be to employ fact-based, best-in-class materials and strategic partnerships to bring focus and understanding to the serious nature of this disease.

The Council will work to identify the magnitude of the problem and ascertain the treatment needs of Missouri’s citizens. It will determine the best practice diagnostic, treatment, prevention, early intervention and recovery services for people suffering from eating disorders. The Council will evaluate support systems for sufferers and their families and promote the acquisition of healthcare treatment providers.

Funded by the MOEDC, Body U offers students eating disorders, depression, and anxiety screening and provides online interventions to promote healthy behaviors.
