B-eat is the UK’s eating disorder charity, giving those who have eating disorders, and their loved ones, a place where they will be listened to, supported and empowered. B-eat aim to increase understanding through offering clear information, and to reduce stigma associated with eating disorders at every level. They offer practical guidance to people affected by eating disorders, and a HelpFinder service to assist people in finding treatment in their local area. B-eat can also provide information and support to friends and family members concerned that someone they care about may have an eating disorder.
Eating disorders are often accompanied by isolation. In recognition of this fact, B-eat runs message boards, online support groups and regional support services, in order to allow people to talk to others with similar experiences in a way that best suits them, helping them to feel less alone with their eating disorder. In particular, they run a number of different online chat rooms for those with anorexia, bulimia, and emotional overeating or binge eating, and for people supporting others with an eating disorder. They run email and phone helplines which are open 365 days a year from 3pm to 10pm. They can be contacted by anyone who wants support from the service, be it for themselves or someone they care about.
