April 26, 2017 Meeting Recap: Eating Disorders

As usual, we began with the presentation with general info about To Write Love On Her Arms and its UChapters. Then we began learning about eating disorders. We chose eating disorders as our final topic of the year because the National Eating Disorders Walk is near the end of the semester.

We went over facts and statistics, causes, risk factors, and resources about/for eating disorders. This presentation was filled with lots of articles and other news, so we separated those specifically addressing eating disorders first.

Eating disorder news and links included:

Then we went into the general mental health news section, which included:

Thanks to our treasurer, Carly, we learned that two of the 2017-2018 One Book One Campus nominees address mental health. Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why and Stephen Chbosky’s Perks of Being a Wallflower are in the running to be the next One Book One Campus. Each member of the OBOC committee nominates a book, but the chancellor gets the final say. TWLOHA founder Jamie Tworkowski’s If You Feel Too Much was this year’s OBOC selection.
