What We Do

The Eating Disorder Foundation of Orange County is dedicated to the awareness and prevention of eating disorders through education in our local schools, sports teams and community organizations. We also provide confidential counseling referrals and in-patient and medical treatment referrals.

We offer individuals struggling with eating disorders and their families the opportunity to meet with others who are suffering through this devastating illness and get the added support that is so desperately needed during recovery. We encourage interested individuals and groups to join together and form a strong voice that seeks to find a cure for eating disorders.

Of special research and focus are those individuals involved in gymnastics, figure skating, ballet/dance, cheerleading, running, and media-focused professions such as modeling and acting.

The Eating Disorder Foundation of Orange County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency founded by Nicole Bourquin and supported by a group of psychotherapists and other mental health practitioners devoted to educating our children, teachers, coaches, and parents on the reality and effect of eating disorders on young people in our community.
