The Centre is consulting with a number of McGill and SSMU departments to assess their knowledge of eating disorders as well as their deficiencies in support. Please fill out this survey below and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to get more involved! The Centre aims to pressure the McGill administration to provide more resources and assistance to eating disorder support on campus. We also plan to develop eating disorder awareness workshops for various McGill departments.
We are acutely aware of the lack of resources available to universities for mental health care, and are aiming to conduct more research on provincial resources as well as legislation around care. Once completed, we will compile and share a listing of those resources to other schools in the province, as well as work together to pressure the provincial government to allocate more resources and change legislation – more details to come!
We are in the process of advocating for specialized, accessible on-campus support for students struggling with eating disorders and disordered eating. We want students’ perspectives on what works, what doesn’t, and what they’d like to see in the future! Please fill out our Eating Disorders Campaign Survey if you would like to share your feedback on on-campus and off-campus resources as well as any thoughts on how the SSMU and McGill Student Services should address the prevalence of eating disorders and disordered eating amongst students. For more information, or to get involved with the campaign, please contact email@example.com.
