NEDA Toolkits are free resources designed to educate on eating disorders. You can also request that a CD-ROM with all the first three toolkits be sent to a local school or community organization near you. Just fill out this simple request form and we’ll take care of the rest.
The NEDA Parent Toolkit is for anyone who wants to understand more about how to support a family member or friend affected by an eating disorder. You will find answers to your insurance questions; signs, symptoms and medical consequences; information about treatment and levels of care; and questions to ask when choosing a treatment provider.
The NEDA Educator Toolkit is a resource for educators, staff who work in a school setting or those who work with youth outside of school. If you want to understand more about eating disorders, if you’d like to know how to support students and young people who may be affected, this information will help you.

Get REAL! Digital Media Literacy Toolkit
In our media saturated culture, it is hard to escape the onslaught of messages about our bodies.To help counteract media’s potential influence on normalizing unrealistic body standards, students from California State University, Northridge (CSUN) partnered with the National Eating Disorders Association on a civic engagement project to create a Digital Media Literacy Toolkit. The Get REAL! Toolkit features interactive activities to think critically about the body image messages we see, hear and read in the digital media culture every day. It’s perfect for educators or youth programmers who want to improve media literacy among young people.
Special thank you to Bobbie Eisenstock, PhD and her students for their hard work on this project.
