Earlier in the year, Kent posted about some government-based sites related to eating disorders.  This week, we highlight a couple more.  Today's post is called Something-fishy.org.  According to the site, they are "Dedicated to raising awareness and providing support to people with Eating Disorders, and their loved-ones... since 1995."  The content is quite detailed from descriptions of what an eating disorder is, symptoms of various eating disorders, and treatments, both from without and within.  The site is comprehensive and contains some excellent information.  This link to the site map will give you a great overview.

One point made on the front page is that they are pro-recovery.  We will post later about sites known as "pro-ana."  Something-fishy does not deal with pictures, examples of weight or other triggers for those with eating disorders.  They also have links to professional treatment centers.  If you have experience with the site or their partners, please comment.

My wife is a PhD Psychotherapist who specializes in eating disorders and has recommended "Something Fishy" to her clients for years. It is definitely a good pro-recovery site.

I don't mention the pro-ana sites in my class unless students bring them up. They have too may triggers for those with eating disorders, and too many people report "learning how to have" an eating disorder from such sites.
