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

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 2 free hotlines in Malta that can help you:

  • Regularly checking your body in the mirror for flaws.
  • Monitoring calories consumed very cautiously and paying close attention to food nutrition labels.
  • Over-exercising as an attempt to control weight and make up for eating too much.
  • Experiencing strong negative emotions when thinking about your body.
  • Negative self-talk related to body weight, shape, or size.
  • Fear of gaining weight and becoming larger.
  • Distorted body image: thinking you’re overweight when you’re a normal weight or underweight.
  • Lying to others about whether you have eaten so you can skip meals.

It can be hard to deal with the feelings of shame and guilt that so often accompany negative body image and disordered eating. Admitting that you've lost control and that you need help may feel harder than keeping your problems to yourself.

Taking the first step to talk to someone about what you're going through is hard but the sooner you get help, the sooner you may start to feel better. When you contact a helpline in Malta, a trained helpline counselor will listen to your concerns and offer you the support you need.

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