Formed by a committed group of parents, mental health specialists and business leaders, the mission of Calgary Silver Linings Foundation is to work collaboratively to create a world-class residential eating disorder treatment centre in Alberta. We are the only Alberta foundation working towards this critical goal.
The three most common eating disorders are anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder. Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness, including depression. But recovery is possible with early intervention and specialized, multi-disciplinary, long-term care. Currently, an estimated 55,000 Albertans suffer from an eating disorder.
Together, let's #BuildTheSilverLining and bring world-class residential eating disorder treatment to Alberta.
