National Alliance for Eating Disorders

About National Alliance for Eating Disorders

The National Alliance for Eating Disorders (formerly The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness) is the leading national nonprofit organization providing referrals, education, and support for all eating disorders. Since October 2000, we have worked tirelessly to raise awareness; eliminate secrecy and stigma; promote access to care; and support those susceptible to, currently experiencing, and recovering from eating disorders.

The Alliance offers comprehensive services, including:

Educational presentations and training days
Free, weekly, therapist-led support groups nationwide (virtual and in-person) for those experiencing eating disorders and for their loved ones
Support and referrals through both our free help-line and comprehensive referral website/app
Direct, low-cost, life-saving, outpatient treatment to underinsured and uninsured adults in the South Florida community.
Unique and empowering Southern Smash scale smashing events and SmashTALK panel discussions.
Over the past 21 years, we have demonstrated our tireless commitment to creating change and making a positive impact on our community.

“I enjoyed getting to experience the entirety of the organization. I shadowed each person within the Alliance, and got to see the different parts of what made the organization work so well! They treated me as an equal the entire time, and answered all of my questions thoroughly, and even asked me questions of their own. They showed me all their resources they provide as well as preventative services they offer. ”
