Eating disorders affect around 1.6 million people in the UK, 10% of those being Male. Yet male sufferers are rarely heard of, whether it be because they themselves are unaware of the symptoms or are afraid to come forward due to the stigma surrounding men with eating disorders.
This project aims to raise awareness of male eating disorders and encourage those who are suffering or perhaps know of someone who is, to speak out and seek treatment. The more we speak openly about male eating disorders, the less of a taboo subject they will become and the female association will be void.
