The Multi-service Eating Disorders Association (MEDA) is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of eating disorders and disordered eating. MEDA’s mission is to prevent the continuing spread of eating disorders through educational awareness and early detection. MEDA serves as a support network and resource for clients, loved ones, clinicians, and educators.
Within the community, MEDA mentors individuals in their understanding of eating disorders; empowers individuals to live free of body, food and weight obsessions; develops eclectic and diversified treatment teams for clients and their loved ones; and assists individuals by offering the training and support necessary for recovery.
The internet is an invaluable tool to help those with mental illness find support, treatment and resources. MEDA’s website receives over 2 million hits annually, yet MEDA does not have a budget to maintain the increase in traffic or develop a new site. The last update to MEDA’s website was 8 years ago.
Just recently MEDA released a website satisfaction survey and we received some valuable feedback, including the need for streamlined content, improved navigation, a more modern design, and enhanced online web presence.
With a new and improved website, we would have the opportunity to elevate MEDA’s presence and impact in the local community in a variety of ways.
1) A revamped, user-friendly design including more keyword content that would attract more visitors and broaden our reach in the local community and beyond.
2) With video content, we would help empower individuals with recovery stories and positive body image messages; and raise awareness with videos on eating disorder prevention and early detection.
3) Creating a sub-site for MEDA Professional Members would aid in developing treatment teams for clients in a more timely and efficient manner.
With this incredible opportunity, MEDA can dream of an enhanced and comprehensive website that would vastly improve MEDA’s brand exposure, but more importantly extend our reach to a greater number of individuals, families, educators, and the general public within Massachusetts. Together we could save more lives.
Thank you for your support!
