Description

This film reveals the impact of eating disorders on one small group of people, but it’s about ALL of us. Putting an end to eating disorders means building awareness, changing the way we think about eating, body image, and fitness, and providing the compassion and support people with eating disorders need to recover. All ages are welcome to attend. Doors open at 6:30pm and the screening will begin at 7pm. The film is 75 minutes in length. There will be a panel discussion with experts in the field immediately following the film. Audience participation is highly encouraged. Question and comment cards will be handed out prior to the film so viewers can jot down notes and questions during the film.

PANEL INFORMATION:

Brian Cuban, the younger brother of Dallas Mavericks owner and entrepreneur Mark Cuban, is a Dallas based attorney, author and addiction recovery advocate. He is graduate of Penn State University and The University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Brian has been in long term recovery from alcohol, cocaine and bulimia since April of 2007. His first book, Shattered Image: My Triumph Over Body Dysmorphic Disorder,” chronicles his first-hand experiences living with, and recovering from, twenty-seven years of eating disorders, and Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD). Brian’s most recent, best-selling book, The Addicted Lawyer, Tales of The Bar, Booze, Blow, & Redemption is an un-flinching look back at how addiction and other mental health issues destroyed his career as a once successful lawyer and how he and others in the profession redefined their lives in recovery and found redemption. Brian has spoken at law schools, colleges, universities, conferences, non-profit and bar association events across the United States and in Canada. Brian has appeared on prestigious talks shows such as the Katie Couric Show as well as numerous media outlets around the country. He also writes extensively on these subjects. His columns have appeared and he has been quoted on these topics on CNN.com, Foxnews.com, The Huffington Post, Above The Law, The New York Times, and in online and print newspapers around the world.

If you believe that thoughts about food, weight, and appearance may be taking up too much of your time, then you may be experiencing symptoms of an eating disorder. When you have an eating disorder, it's important to seek help as fast as possible, since treatment helps most when you get it quickly. Here are some statements to consider:


  • I intentionally restrict my food intake.

  • I have episodes of excessive overeating.

  • I make myself sick to eliminate the food I eat.

  • I experience fear, shame, disgust or guilt about food or my body.

  • My life, health, or relationships have been affected negatively by my eating behaviors.

A “Yes” to any of these statements is a flag for further assessment. Texas Health Dallas is here to help. Call 1-800-411-7081 for more information.
