Represent: Feed and NEDA « Troian Bellisario Fansite


 

There are only 7 hours left to join Troian in raising awareness for eating disorders through her film Feed by purchasing an official merchandise item from represent.com/feed. Proceeds go to the National Eating Disorders Association.

Troian Bellisario: When I wrote “Feed,” my greatest hope was to offer a different perspective on an often misunderstood and underrepresented category of mental illness, eating disorders (ED’s). Through the story of Olivia Grey, I hope to challenge peoples’ expectation of what causes an ED and what someone who is suffering with one may look like, but this is only one interpretation, one narrative of this very complicated and painful type of illness that affects millions of people each year, of every race, every gender and every kind. The best way to fight these diseases are with education, support and specialized treatment, which can be costly and not always readily available. That is where NEDA comes in, the National Eating Disorders Association is working day and night to make eating disorders a disease of the past. They are educating families and friends to identify early warning signs, they are steering people towards treatment that their insurance can afford, they are pouring money into researching the most effective ways to treat people suffering with all different kinds of Eating Disorders, and they are helping those people who might not even know why they are suffering to understand that they do not have to live their life in pain, that they can get on a path towards recovery.
