In honor of World Eating Disorders Action Day, Routledge Mental Health asked June Alexander how her diary has helped with her recovery from an eating disorder. Read her inspiring article, My Diary and Me: A Writing Partnership that Fought ED and Won.
June also participated in a full interview, Using Writing as a Therapy for Eating Disorders: The Diary Healer Interview, which is available as a podcast and in writing here.
Diana has experienced eating disorders and recovery firsthand, with herself and her daughter. She co-founded The Diary Healer website with June Alexander and has written several blog posts based on her personal experiences in the hope that sharing her stories will give others a sense of community and connection, and give herself some perspective and healing along the way.
