Petition Add the topic of eating disorders to the national PSHE curriculum
In the UK, 1.6 million people suffer from an eating disorder. This is an issue that often affects students, especially teenagers from 14-25. We believe that is often not talked about so to raise awareness and break the stigma we want it to be added to the national PSHE curriculum.
6.4% of Adults displayed evidence of having an eating disorder.
Children as young as 6 have been known to have an eating disorder.
Being able to spot the symptoms in a friend or family member is extremely important and with growing numbers of eating disorders in the UK, it is essential to equip the youth with the right knowledge.
