Beat Eating Disorder

We know autistic people face extra barriers to support for eating disorders. So this Autism Acceptance Month, we’re asking autistic people with experience of eating disorders about their experiences.

Share your thoughts

What do we need from you?  We’re gathering people’s thoughts through an anonymous survey, with a mix of multiple choice and open questions. We’ll ask you about your experiences with an eating disorder as an autistic person, as well as some demographic information. For open questions, you can add as much or as little information as you like. Your wellbeing comes first, so think about whether you’re in a good place to reflect on your experiences. Remember, you can skip any questions you don’t want to answer. 

Who can take part?  We’d love to hear from anyone who’s either autistic themselves and has had an eating disorder, or has supported an autistic person with an eating disorder. Your experience might be happening now or have happened in the past. You don’t need a formal diagnosis of either autism or an eating disorder. 

What happens next?  Your answers will help us report on eating disorder care for autistic people. They’ll help us make sure any recommendations we make to services about support for autistic people and their carers are informed by experts like you.
