Kristina Saffran, the co-founder and CEO of Project HEAL, shares how starting her non-profit at age 15 helped her complete her own recovery from Anorexia Nervosa. In the last ten years, Kristina and her co-founder Liana Rosenman have grown Project HEAL to be the leading non-profit organization in the United States delivering prevention, treatment financing, and recovery support for people suffering from eating disorders. Project HEAL has over 40 chapters in the US, Canada, and Australia and continues to grow. Kristina talks about the complexities of eating disorders, which are mental health illnesses. Kristina also talks about the “thin ideal” and how it does a disservice to all women.
