I am an eating disorder specialist in the Boston area.
I started a national organization for college students with eating disorders after moving to a new town and finding out that 5 students in a 4 1/2 year period died as a result of their illness.
We offer pro bono services to any student nationwide seeking treatment resources and stay with each family for as long as is needed. We also offer awareness and training events to help the community-at-large become more informed about these important issues and to also help reduce the shame that those with these disorders feel so strongly. (I've personally worked with over 800 families providing intensive support so that they are able to obtain life-saving treatment for their eating disorder).
How You Can Help:
Hynes Recovery Services would love to expand our network so that we can continue to support these families pro bono - we don't know any other entity that provides this level of support for an expended period of time without requesting funds for these services.
If you'd like to volunteer with us, or help us seek permanent office space in the Wellesley, MA area, that would be wonderful!! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
