Eating disorders are not uncommon, but they are often invisible. The Renfrew Center works to raise awareness about how to recognize if you, or someone you know, is struggling -- and how to get help. Primary therapist Yosan Gebre Ab talks us through it. Plus, a recovery story from Lola Morales, who found help just in time.
