The White House announced President Joe Biden’s proclamation on National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.

The president stated, “During National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, we shine a light on these serious health conditions, which impact nearly 1 in 10 people across America, and reaffirm our commitment to improving access to mental health services, treatment, recovery, and support. Eating disorders are serious and life-threatening, but with early intervention, a full recovery is possible.“

“Each of us has the power to show compassion to those who are struggling, help break down the barriers standing in the way of recovery, and create a culture that treats everyone with dignity and respect,“ President Biden continued. “As Americans, we have a duty to reach out to one another and leave no one behind. Let us extend a helping hand to those struggling with an eating disorder and ensure that they have access to the treatment they deserve. “

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. health officials as they seek to provide resources to those who struggle with eating disorders.
  • For God’s healing and strength for those who are dealing with mental health challenges and their families.
  • For the president and members of his administration as they promote awareness surrounding health disorders and conditions.
