Let’s talk about eating disorders. In 2019, a survey done by American College Health Associate estimated that around 4,000 UC Berkeley students have experienced an eating disorder (ACHA-NCHA survey, 2019). To our surprise, more than 30 million people in the United States will suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder during their lifetime.
This decal class is designed to raise awareness and conversation around this sensitive topic. We are not experts but we want to take the first step towards discussing and acknowledging the emerging phenomenon. We are inspired by our own journeys from the worst points to recovery and we hope this decal would be a road to explore eating disorder topics, for those that are interested in this topic, taking this class for someone you love, or having first-hand experience.
We will start with a basic introduction to the understanding of human nutritional needs and then dive into the role of food and nutrition in mental and physical health. To make us feel more connected, students may voluntarily share their knowledge of eating disorders or relationship with food either in class or privately with the facilitators.
There’s no prerequisite knowledge needed. Students with all backgrounds, goals are welcomed.
