Fear of rejection, fear of failure, lack of self esteem, feelings of low self worth, undeserving, abuse, societal pressures and more. For those struggling with an eating disorder they often find a sense of control, relief from emotion and pressures, from the voice in their head telling them they are not good enough, they are a disappointment, disgusting.

Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any other mental illness, with 10-20% dying from complications.

The incidence of London youth living with an eating disorder is higher than the Canadian average. 57% of teen girls and 33% of teen boys use unhealthy weight control.

We are bombarded with unrealistic expectations of who we should be. How often do you look in the mirror and are hard on yourself? Let's create change. Let's inspire a community that celebrates all shapes and sizes.

Hope's Garden receives no government funding nor is it supported by United Way, and relies exclusively on donations and special events to meet community needs. Join us August 20, 2014 for a preview screening of the comedy Stag and Doe at the Port Stanley Festival Theatre. By supporting Hope's Garden you will help provide a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space where those affected by eating disorders, and who have the courage to ask for help, can openly share the incredible challenges they face on a daily basis. Your support will give those struggling access to information, an opportunity to explore feelings and behaviours, develop coping strategies, reduce isolation and inspire recovery.

Limited tickets available. Only $40 each. Call 519-434-7721 to reserve tickets today.
