Eating disorders can impact the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) community in a different way compared to the white community and is often affected by cultural, societal, and systemic factors. BIPOC individuals may face unique challenges such as racial discrimination, intergenerational trauma, and cultural pressures regarding body image and food. In addition, limited access to culturally sensitive mental health resources and stereotypes within healthcare systems can hinder diagnosis and treatment.

Our articles aim to address these issues and help educate people on how BIPOC communities may experience disparities in socioeconomic status and how it can lead to barriers in accessing quality care. Recognizing these intersections is crucial in addressing and supporting BIPOC individuals struggling with eating disorders, promoting inclusivity, understanding, and tailored interventions.
