Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2019

To mark Eating Disorder Awareness Week 2019 at UCL, we created an exhibition aimed at raising awareness of the different types of eating disorder, their causes, symptoms and signs, how to get help, and how you can help a friend.

I have uploaded the exhibition as a gallery here so that it can be explored whenever. Hopefully it can help shine some light on the different kinds of eating disorder and how to get help.
