The more insurance claims, doctors visits and treatment
facility enrollments for eating disorders, the more awareness, research and
PREVENTION spreads. The Victorian is in the business of treating eating
, but we also have an urge to prevent them. Eating Disorder prevention
is on the rise.  Some of the most noted
preventative and awareness campaigns are:


Dove True Beauty– Dove skincare has launched it’s own campaign
to reveal the onslaught of self deprecating ads that women are bombarded
with on a daily basis in our culture. They seek to reveal that True Beauty is being exactly who you are, flaws and all. They have also invested in teaching young girls about True
Beauty through their True Beauty campaign taught by mothers and teachers in schools. Their True Beauty curriculum can be found on their website.

Rewrite Beautiful– Promotes eating disorder awareness
through Street Art Workshops. Rewrite Beautiful teaches that beauty isn’t found
in your aestehetics but, in women’s actions of Creativity, Kindness and
Strenght.  Rewrite Beautiful will
actually be visiting The Victorian and Sober Living By the Sea on Saturday, September
10th.  Find out more about Rewrite Beautiful on their website or search “Rewrite Beautiful” on Facebook.

The National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) – Hosts
several walk-a-thons every year in and out of the USA to promote eating
disorder awareness. The money raised goes to eating disorder research.
