National Eating Disorder Screening Program Announces Partners

National Eating Disorder Screening ProgramThe National Eating Disorder Screening Program (NEDSP) from Screening for Mental Health, Inc. (SMH) has partnered with three organizations for the 2011 NEDSP campaign. Eating Disorder Hope, Remuda Ranch and Timberline Knolls have agreed to be fiscal sponsors of the program for the upcoming year.

In 2010 NEDSP was implemented at over 450 colleges and universities throughout the country with over 17,000 students getting screened. The goal, with the assistance of these organizations, is to increase the number of college sites as well as the screenings completed by students.

NEDSP is a part of the CollegeResponse® Program at Screening for Mental Health, Inc. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please contact Jason Marshall, Program Manager, at: 781-591-5246

We are inviting college students to produce a 30 second public service announcement (PSA) about the prevalence of eating disorders among college students. Winning entries will be used as part of this year's National Eating Disorders Screening Program® campaign and will win a prize of up to $500. It's creative, fun and students can learn something in the process. They will also have the opportunity to create a tool that could positively impact on their peers.

This initiative is sponsored by the nonprofit, Screening for Mental Health, Inc. (SMH). For more than a decade, SMH has developed award-winning mental health education and screening programs for colleges and universities nationwide. Our CollegeResponse® program promotes the prevention, early detection and treatment of prevalent, often under-diagnosed treatable mental health disorders. For more information, visit
