Contact a hotline for eating disorder and body image issues in Finland today

It's normal to feel disatisfied with the way your body looks some days. But feeling this way most days is unhealthy. Poor body image can lead to disordered eating. If you have any of the following symptoms, there are 5 free hotlines in Finland that can help you:

  • Sudden weight loss or weight gain.
  • Being overly cautious of food portion size, especially about eating "too much."
  • Mood swings due to hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiences.
  • Monitoring calories consumed very cautiously and paying close attention to food nutrition labels.
  • Shifting food around on your plate so it looks like you’ve eaten more than you have.
  • Growth of a fine layer of hair on the body called lanugo.
  • Trying to control your body weight/shape by vomiting, laxative abuse, or excessive exercise.
  • Comparing your body shape and/or weight to 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 Finland 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.

For free and confidential support with eating and body image, consider contacting a hotline in Finland today.
