When I instead started working on focusing on my self-esteem and my self-confidence, it suddenly became different. I began to immerse myself in behavior change and focused on linking this to strengthening my inner core, and it paid off. By strengthening my self-esteem and self-confidence, I was able to get out of my eating disorder.
We do this both in digital format, via a mobile application, but also through one webforum where our users can get help and support from others in the same situation. Today I have a team consisting of b.la. behavioral scientists and CBT therapists who are passionate about this subject at least as much as I am. You are welcome to contact us if you have any questions, we are here for you.

Mental illness among young people is a large and growing problem, over 30 percent of girls and 16 percent of boys aged 15-25 feel mentally ill. Of the 1,800 suicides committed each year, the majority are committed by a person under the age of 25. The need for different methods to reduce mental illness among young people is therefore great. Many of the mental illnesses e.g. eating disorders and compulsive behaviors, can be attributed to a basically low self-esteem, poor self-esteem and weak self-image.
We work to ensure that every young person receives the help they need and to be a support to parents and relatives. Our vision is to reduce the gap between primary care and specialist care. We strive for young people to receive help early on to build up their self-esteem and thereby reduce the risk of young people developing an eating disorder.
Together against eating disorders!?
