Get help for eating disorder and body image problems from a helpline in Austria.

If you're always disatisfied with the way your body looks and you've tried to control how it looks in harmful ways, then you may have an eating disorder. There are 11 hotlines in Austria that help with body image and eating problems. If these symptoms sound familiar, reach out for free support:

  • Fear of gaining weight and becoming larger.
  • Shifting food around on your plate so it looks like you’ve eaten more than you have.
  • Withdrawal from social activities, especially ones that involve food and eating.
  • Regularly checking your body in the mirror for flaws.
  • Lying to others about whether you have eaten so you can skip meals.
  • Monitoring calories consumed very cautiously and paying close attention to food nutrition labels.
  • Dizziness and potentially fainting.
  • Feeling uncomfortable eating in front of others.

Eating disorders can be all-consuming. When you become preoccupied with controlling your weight and what you eat, other important aspects of life can fall by the wayside. It can be an extremely isolating experience.

You may be nervous to call a helpline in Austria because you're worried about how the person on the other line may react. These fears are completely normal. What's important to know is that helpline staff are well trained and they will treat you with compassion and understanding.

If you feel like you might need support with your body image or eating disorders, try reaching out to a hotline in Austria. It's free and confidential.
