Saskia Thuot united to raise awareness about eating disorders
Anorexia and bulimia Quebec (ANEB) proudly introduces the Ambassadors for its 10th Fundraising Campaign. Five exceptional women, from the artistic and cultural world, have once again accepted this year, without hesitation, to get involved with ANEB. Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, Catherine Brunet (also spokesperson), Clodine Desrochers, Maxim Roy and Saskia Thuot will unite for the cause of eating disorders.
They are committed to raising public awareness of this unknown and taboo illness, in addition to promoting ANEB’S services and needs.
This 30-year anniversary also serves as an opportunity to celebrate ANEB’s achievements. Year after year, it has helped change perception and attitudes towards these illnesses, and above all, helped thousands of people find the path to healing.
For Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, the cause of women is one particularly close to her heart, “I became an Ambassador to help all women and girls currently suffering in silence. I truly believe that by sharing our stories, we can reach out to them, in hopes of saving lives. I also joined the team to reach out to all parents and friends who wish to help their loved ones yet sometimes have a hard time grasping the nature of the illness, including the role they can play in the healing process.”
In turn, Clodine Desrochers added, “I am involved as an Ambassador because as a teen, I went through hell due to eating disorders. Luckily, I pulled through. Therefore, I wish to bring a message of hope. One must seek help, talk about the situation, and above all, believe that he or she can heal and get back to living
a normal life.”
As far as Saskia Thuot is concerned, “A growing number of people — increasingly young — suffer from eating disorders. Lucky for us, ANEB explains, supports, and helps us improve our understanding of the illness.”
“It saddens me that there is still work to do concerning body image in the media, on social networks and in homes. However, I believe that thanks to organizations such as ANEB, with their partnerships and initiatives, things will change, and people who suffer will feel increasing support and openness,” added Catherine Brunet,
Finally, Maxim Roy concluded by saying that “On a daily basis, we are swarmed with images of what society calls ‘perfection’. Eating disorders are ‘normal’ in my field. Unbelievable but true! Many become obsessed with their image. People see this as a ‘common’ sacrifice. It is essential to raise awareness, and to talk about it.”

ANEB thank you for your understanding.
ANEB Québec is currently developing a publicity committee to promote its services. The vast majority of our activities takes place in Montreal and the surrounding areas. A lack of specialised resources in eating disorders has increased our desire to expand our services across Quebec so as to achieve greater visibility and to help more people.
ANEB Quebec is looking for volunteers who would like to take part in this committee! More specifically, we’re looking for people to help out in Gatineau, the North Shore and Trois-Rivières. In order to publicise our organisation in these regions, volunteers will need to promote ANEB’s services by distributing promotional material (pamphlets, posters, cards, etc.) in different places, animating kiosks, and sharing useful information with professionals and many other people!>/
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
