NIHM Twitter Chat: Eating Disorders

National Institute of Mental Health
Eating disorders affect people of all genders, ages, races/ethnicities, body weights, and socioeconomic statuses. Obsessions with food, body weight, and shape may be signs of an eating disorder. These disorders can affect a person’s physical and mental health; in some cases, they can be life-threatening. But eating disorders can be treated. Learning more about them can help you spot the warning signs and seek treatment early.
In recognition of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, NIMH is hosting a Twitter chat on eating disorders. This chat will cover the common types of eating disorders, how they are treated, current research, and how to find help. Mark Chavez, Ph.D., the Program Chief of the NIMH Eating Disorders Research Program, will be available to discuss the topic and answer questions live on Twitter.
Participating is easy.
  • To ask questions, you must have a Twitter account.
  • Follow @NIMHgov on Twitter for updates about the chat and other information about mental health research.

Supporting Women in Recovery: A Trauma-Informed Approach to Substance Use Treatment

National Center on DV
The National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health is pleased to announce an upcoming webinar in our Trauma, Opioids, and Domestic Violence Series co-sponsored by the Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice. Join us for this webinar and please stay tuned for information about our other upcoming webinars in 2019!

Wednesday, March 13th from 12:00 - 1:30 PM PT



Women with substance use concerns often experience unique barriers to treatment and specialized needs that go unmet within traditional treatment settings, including: experiences of trauma and intimate partner violence, co-occurring health conditions, increased economic instability, family and parenting needs, medication assisted treatment during pregnancy, and gender-specific risk factors. This trans-inclusive webinar defines what it means for services to be comprehensive, trauma-informed, and gender responsive for women; identifies issues to consider when working with women, including women who are pregnant or parenting; and discusses how to apply gender-responsive care in the delivery of behavioral health treatment and recovery services in order to improve outcomes for women and their families.
