Sovereign Health Recognizes Eating Disorders Awareness Week
San Clemente, California – February 18, 2016 – Sovereign Health Group will launch a week-long campaign in support of Eating Disorders Awareness Week (EDAW). The goal of this national campaign, which runs from February 21-27, is to raise awareness about eating disorders, examine myths, and challenge the stigmas and stereotypes about eating disorders.
“Supporting National Eating Disorders Awareness Week translates into more compassion, understanding and financial support of a disease that has doubled in frequency the last 20 years and is taking the lives of many young people in this country,” says Janet Whitney, MA, LMFT, Sovereign Health of San Clemente’s Eating Disorders Program Director. “Sovereign Health of San Clemente is working towards increasing the recovery from this mental disorder that creates emotional, physical and relationship issues for its victims.”
Sovereign Health’s EDAW campaign will include a continuing education (C.E.) networking luncheon to promote Sovereign Health of San Clemente’s Eating Disorders program; daily social media posts and blogs focused on educating the public about eating disorders; and a social media campaign with a call to action for supporters to wear purple, the color that represents Eating Disorders Awareness Week.

The program offers each client an individualized plan, encompassing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
