Who should I call for an emergency regarding anorexia?

ANSWER

If you’re having any thoughts about ending your life, call your doctor or 911 immediately. People care about you and they want to help. You can also call one of the free suicide prevention helplines, including the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255. And you don’t need to give your name.

Facing anorexia can make you feel angry or sad. Don’t forget that doctors treat lots of people for anorexia and they’ve gotten better. When you spot symptoms and ask for help, you put yourself on the road to recovery.
