Freed is a non-profit organization that aims to encourage conversations around Eating Disorders and provide support to individuals and families affected by Eating Disorders in India.
Eating disorders are grossly misunderstood mental illnesses, where support options range from non-existent to extremely limited across our country. There has been a steady increase in cases in India, credited mostly to the rapid rise in unrestricted access to mobile internet and social media content. However, there’s a huge gap between the perceived downside and benefits of speaking up about a personal struggle with mental health.
At Freed, our aim is to bridge this gap and provide a safe stigma-free environment, a support structure, for people for prevention, cure, education and intervention. We aim to re-imagine a world where men and women feel empowered to truly be able to accept and respect their bodies.
