Body dissatisfaction and low self-esteem can negatively impact one’s academic performance and social life. If your preoccupation with food, weight and your shape are preventing you from enjoying everyday activities, counseling can help you regain balance.
UWM is offering free eating disorder screenings on Tuesday, April 12 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. You can receive a free screening that day by signing up at the information table on the main floor of the UWM union, or by going directly to room 143, the private screening area in the union. These screenings will help participants learn about signs of eating disorders, their personal risk factors, and available treatment options.
The screenings include:
- An anonymous eating disorder assessment
- Educational resources for participants to take home
- A confidential interview with a mental health specialist to discuss the results of individual screenings
- A list of local resources where treatment is available
During this time, free educational information about good nutrition and healthy exercise will be available at the information table. UWM mental health counselors will also be at the table and available to answer questions.
