Welcome to Houston Eating Disorders Specialists › Forums › Houston Eating Disorders Specialists Forum › Poppy’s Run For Life 5K For Suicide Prevention & Awareness
In a recent comprehensive study of mortality in eating disorders, researchers found that suicide was the most common non-natural cause of death. Two-thirds of the non-natural deaths among patients with anorexia nervosa and all of those among patients with bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder were from suicide, leading the researchers to conclude that “suicide is a major concern not only in [anorexia nervosa] but in all eating disorders.” (Lauren Muhlheim, PsyD, CEDS, 2021).
Poppy’s Run For Life will be held on Sunday, March 26th, 2023 at Hennessy Park, 1900 Lyons Avenue. All proceeds go to the Montrose Center and JFS to support suicide prevention and awareness programs.
Dr. Caryn Honig MEd RD LD (a long time HEDS member and 25+ years working in the eating disorder community) is the founder and director of Poppy’s Run For Life.
We need sponsors, walkers and runners. Please spread the word! And please join us on March 26th at 7:30 a.m.
