About Us

Project HEAL is the only major direct service nonprofit in the U.S. focused on equitable healthcare access for people with eating disorders. Our mission is to break down systemic, healthcare, and financial barriers to eating disorder treatment. We deliver our mission through four (4) core Treatment Support programs: Insurance Navigation, Treatment Placement, Cash Assistance, and Clinical Assessment. We are also involved in research, education, and advocacy efforts at the national level. Our vision is that everyone with an eating disorder has the resources and opportunities they need to recover.

Project HEAL was founded in 2008 by two 15 year olds who themselves had just recovered from their eating disorders, united by their dream to raise funds for others who could not otherwise afford treatment. Since then, we’ve helped hundreds of people access treatment (and counting!), and we’re active in the movement to reform and transform the American mental health care system to work for everyone, not just the privileged few.
