F.E.A.S.T. Families,

We have received a query from a journalist in the UK who is looking for a male eating disorder sufferer to interview. The details are below.

We encourage families to consider media interviews because we believe our empowered and thoughtful family community has important insights and experiences that the public benefits from hearing. But we are also very sensitive to the potential harm to a family from losing privacy or having one's story sensationalized or mischaracterized.

F.E.A.S.T. has a very useful page on our website that we ask journalists to read before we pass on their queries to our community. We encourage any family considering being interviewed to read it and carefully consider the issues before contacting the writer:

Here is the message:
