Updated Bodywhys Media Guidelines for reporting on eating disorders

We are pleased to share our updated Media Guidelines for those in the media who have any involvement with how stories on eating disorders are reported and represented.

Media stories which are sensitive and accurate, and which avoid sensationalising the issue, can contribute significantly to an increased public understanding of eating disorders, and can encourage those affected to seek support at an early stage.
