BingeBehavior.com is a website designed to support people with binge eating disorder (BED), impulse control disorders (Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors – BRFBs), and who battle weight bias and stigma.
The purpose of BingeBehavior.com is to alleviate stigma and shame through information, resource identification and advocacy.
The work of BingeBehavior.com is two-fold: to aggregate information supporting people with BED/BFRBs AND to advocate for the end of weight bias and stigma and related injustice in size diversity.
Mental health challenges and size discrimination are by their nature isolating but with persistence, we can challenge the idea that seeking help or that speaking up for one’s rights is in any way shaming. IT IS INDEED A BOLD AND IMPORTANT PURSUIT!
Thank you for becoming a part of BingeBehavior.com and together, let’s create some change!
Very best wishes to you,
Lizabeth Wesely-Casella, Founder
