National Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders

Our Mission

NCEED is the nation’s first center of excellence dedicated to eating disorders. Founded in 2018 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, our mission is to advance education and training of healthcare providers and to promote public awareness of eating disorders and eating disorder treatment. 

Based at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NCEED includes clinicians, researchers, and advocates who specialize in eating disorder care. We are committed to providing up-to-date, reliable, and evidence-based information.

Our goal is to ensure that all individuals with eating disorders are identified, treated, and supported in recovery. Though eating disorders are serious conditions, they can be identified and treated effectively – particularly when providers and the public have the knowledge and skills necessary to make a difference.

Congratulations to Dr. Rachel Goode, one of NCEED’s Content Experts!

“I am so excited about this research opportunity. Eating disorders have been unrecognized and under-diagnosed among African-American women; I hope this study will provide additional information that will improve our knowledge of how to conceptualize and treat disordered eating behaviors in non-white populations.”
