FINDINGbalance
March 14, 2011

My experience with FindingBalance, Inc. has been excellent. I find them to have a wealth of information on eating disorders, treatment, and resources for families and those suffering from eating disorders from a Christian perspective. They are the first organization that I have come across that does such a good job networking between professionals, the community and those who need help. They bridge the gap for those who don't have clinically diagnosed eating disorders but need information and resources for subclinical disorders with which they struggle. FindingBalance has found part of it's niche in educating family members and friends of those who struggle with an eating disorder. It has also networked to build a community of people seeking to build their identity on the validity of Christ's claims through the True Sisterhood. It is an encouraging, humorous, caring website and podcast.

The Great!

I've personally been encouraged by this organization through a personalized written response to one of my inquiries about different kinds of treatment, especially from their board member who is a dietician.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would encourage them to continue finding ways to raise funds so that more people can be included both in their conferences, small groups, and podcasts. I would try to find a way to get the word out about their podcasts (which are so helpful) to a more local level of therapists so that they can pass the information to their clients. The resource is available and I would want to make it available to as many people as possible because the benefits to the fb gatherings and podcasts are so worthwhile.
