"In many ways it's been disastrous": COVID pandemic provides perfect storm for Americans with eating disorders
It has been the perfect storm of negative factors for individuals with eating disorders, or those who are in recovery. "I think in many ways it's been disastrous," said Cynthia Bulik, who is the founding director of the UNC Center for Excellence in Eating Disorders, about the pandemic. Chelsea Kronengold, the communications manager for the National Eating Disorders Association, said the NEDA Helpline has seen a 40% increase in contact since March 2020.

Increased isolation also leaves more time for checking social media, which can be incredibly triggering for individuals with eating disorders.cbsnews.com
