About NEDIC

Established in 1985, the National Eating Disorder Information Centre is Canada’s only national organization dedicated to helping those impacted by eating disorders and body-image issues by providing information, resources, referrals and support.

With a focus on self-acceptance and building positive self-esteem, NEDIC is committed to the prevention of eating disorders. Through its outreach and education programs, NEDIC provides workshops for students, community groups, teachers and health professionals. NEDIC develops and disseminates information resources including brochures, manuals, posters, bookmarks, and blogs to help increase awareness of eating disorders and risk factors, including low self-esteem, negative body-image and issues such as anxiety, depression, and poor coping skills. NEDIC also operates a national toll-free helpline (1-866-NEDIC-20) and instant chat (nedic.ca) to support individuals across the country with information, referrals and support.

Founded as an independent non-profit organization, NEDIC is a program of the University Health Network in Toronto, supported by the Ontario Ministry of Health. Our programs are made possible through the support of generous donors.
