In this episode, we are reviewing the key things you need to know about anorexia nervosa. If you struggle with an eating disorder, and hearing about this topic triggers you, please proceed with caution, or avoid altogether. Your mental health is more important than any nursing school exam.

If you or someone you care about suffers from an eating disorder, please reach out to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) for a wealth of free resources, online chat, and a toll-free help line. If you are in crisis, text NEDA to 741741 and you’ll be connected with a trained volunteer at Crisis Text Line. Crisis Text Line utilizes text messaging to provide free 24/7 support to individuals who are struggling with mental health.
