In July 2018, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee was established at EDCare to support both our team and those we serve in these efforts. Our organization is committed to creating a more inclusive and equitable environment for all patients and employees.
Eating disorders do not discriminate! We recognize that Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ+ communities, as well as people in larger bodies, are less likely to be diagnosed and treated for their mental health needs, have less access to mental health services, and often receive a poorer quality of mental health care.
To best serve our patients, our company’s culture and our treatment efforts need to reflect the diversity of our patient population. This committee has been established to ensure that EDCare is competent and has a set standard of care for marginalized populations within the context of eating disorder treatment.
