Community, online and JCCC resources to help students deal with eating disorders
We hope the links below will provide some helpful information, but they are not intended to take the place of discussing your concerns with a counselor.
Academy for Eating Disorders
This site provides resources for professionals, educators and community members.
National Institute of Mental Health
This site is an excellent source for understanding what an eating disorder is, defining types of eating disorders and explaining its effects on women and girls as well as men and boys.
National Eating Disorder Association
This site offers a comprehensive look at eating disorders. Eating disorders in men, women and children are discussed at length. There are resources for parents, educators and coaches. A confidential helpline is available for those struggling with an eating disorder or concerned friends and family. Key definitions for quick referral and the glossary are also very helpful.
JCCC Student Assistance Program
If you are a student, you may be referred by a JCCC counselor to our short-term student assistance program to help you with emotional or mental health issues.
