Welcome to the
Men Get Eating Disorders Too website

Men Get Eating Disorders Too is an award-winning national charity which is run by and for men with eating disorders including their carers and families.

Our website provides essential information that is specific to the unique needs of men and an online space for those affected to get their voices heard (e.g. peer support via our face to face groups and online). We also campaign in the media, organise awareness-raising events and provide training for professionals.
