Who it helps…
EDIN is an invaluable resource for individuals with eating disorders and their families. It is such a reassurance to have an organization like EDIN in the Southeast to provide efforts toward prevention, support for intervention, and hope for recovery. I am so grateful to this organization!here’s room for more.

I remember my first Merrick’s Walk. There were lots of young girls, young women, and not so young women like myself. I was standing in the back with a group of friends who came to support ME when Dina asked all the “survivors” to encircle the Ryans as Merrick’s sister read a poem. I didn’t move. Didn’t know what to do. Until a friend pushed me forward and held my hand as I entered the circle of survivors. I was a survivor! I am a survivor. ME. Thank you EDIN for being the anchor and support for us – the survivors. There’s room for more.
I came to EDIN just after beginning my commitment to recovery. EDIN reminds me there truly is power in experience, and it makes me feel like a part of the solution instead of a victim of the problem.
EDIN has played an incredible role in my life by transforming me from an observer and sufferer of an eating disorder to an activist fighting against them. EDIN not only gave me the materials, information, and supported the establishment of LULA at my school, it helped me develop organizational skills, leadership, and the ability to articulate myself to others. Ultimately, EDIN also gave me complete closure to the problems of my past and transformed me into the activist I am today. I plan on establishing a similar outreach program in college and to shape my future career to involve nonprofit work.
