Event Description

Hamilton College will host a lecture by Margaret Bertram, the program manager for student-led initiatives at Active Minds, Inc., to recognize National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (NEDAW) which begins Monday, Feb. 25.

Active Minds is a national non-profit organization that empowers students to speak openly about mental health in order to educate others and encourage help-seeking. Bertram’s perfectionism and anxiety struggles began in high school and continued through college where she struggled with shame associated with discovering her lesbian identity, major depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and anorexia nervosa. Since her recovery, she has navigated a path toward a more positive, integrated and balanced life.
