The HSE does not develop, review or endorse specific blogs. However, our patients and the clinical staff who work with them have found some of the blogs below to be useful. They tell us that it is helpful to read about experiences that provide hope and support and can challenge some of the anti-recovery eating disorder content on the internet.
We recommend that parents fully review any material that children under 18 are viewing online.
