Shares an announcement with you

Good morning everyone,

I am excited to announce a new goal for Relationship Solutions Center, P.C. this year.

As a practice, RSC will be planning and participating in more national and international events in 2022.

The first event going on the calendar is a walk to support

NEDA (National Eating Disorders Association)

on April 23rd.

Here is more information according to the NEDA website,

What is a NEDA Walk?

Quickly growing since 2009, NEDA Walks now bring together over 25,000 people of all ages and backgrounds to fight eating disorders.

NEDA Walks are inspirational, community-building events where passionate walkers raise money to fund eating disorders education, prevention, and support, as well as advocacy and research initiatives. NEDA Walks are the largest eating disorders awareness events in the nation. They are also a celebration of hope and strength, filled with body-positive activities, motivational guest speakers, and a short walk to symbolize unity in the fight against eating disorders.

Furthermore, NEDA Walks create a safe and supportive space where no one will feel alone in their battle. It seems as though everybody knows somebody who’s been affected by an eating disorder – so everybody is invited to walk with us! Together, we’ll stand up to stigma and send the message that recovery is possible.

Why do we walk?

Eating disorders are a serious illnesses that affect millions of individuals and their families every day. Despite their increasing prevalence, eating disorders receive less than $1 in research funds per affected person, compared to an average of $70 for other major mental illnesses. Eating disorders are widely misunderstood illnesses and support options are often inaccessible. As a result, too many people are left feeling helpless, hopeless, and frightened – this is why we walk. NEDA Walks are raising critical funds, restoring hope, and changing the conversation surrounding eating disorders.

As the leading U.S. nonprofit supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders, NEDA serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures, and access to quality care. The funds you raise through NEDA Walks put vital resources into the hands of those in need. With every dollar you raise, we are one step closer to our shared vision of a world without eating disorders.

Personally, I have had at least two family members I am aware of who have struggled with eating disorders.  Professionally, I have also seen folks struggling with eating disorders, as well as severe emotional eating problems.

As I find other events I can participate in, I will let you know.  I welcome your questions, and certainly your potential desire to support various organizations as I become aware of national and international mental health and mental illness related events.
