Today, Kathy is joined by Judy Krasna, and their conversation is suicidality and eating disorders, an intimate perspective. We commend Judy for sharing part of her and her daughters story with all of you today.
Judy Krasna is the Executive Director of F.E.A.S.T. (Families Empowered and Supporting Treatment for Eating Disorders). She is a writer and an eating disorders advocate both in Israel, where she lives, and globally. Judy is an active “expert by experience” volunteer in the Academy for Eating Disorders and has been working for over a decade to improve eating disorder treatment and to bridge the research-practice gap.
After volunteering for F.E.A.S.T. in multiple capacities over the past 3 years, Judy became the organization’s Executive Director in February 2021.
Judy is deeply committed to helping and supporting families of people with eating disorders and to promoting awareness about suicidality in eating disorders, especially after her daughter Gavriella took her own life last year after a prolonged battle with anorexia nervosa.
