Welcome to the official Southern Smash blog!
We are thrilled announce our blog, another wonderful avenue to share our mission of eating disorder awareness and education. Our blog is unique in that it is a blog for you and BY YOU! We want this blog to be a voice for everyone and EVERY BODY!
I founded Southern Smash nearly six years ago with a simple idea and a passion to pay it forward. All I set out to do was help ONE person, to touch ONE life. Many years (and a lot of SMASHed scales later), my pay it forward has come back to bless my life a thousand times over.
I have traveled the country and met HUNDREDS of eating disorder warriors (YOU!). You inspired me to start this blog. My vision and hope for this blog is for the world to hear your voice. Because every voice (and every BODY) matters, every story inspires and we want to share yours!
The Southern Smash blog will be guided by our amazing Program Director, Amy Sullivan. She will be taking blog submissions and working hard to ensure our blog reflects the beautiful diversity that we see in our extraordinary eating disorder community.
So stay tuned! Lots more to come,
but not from me...from YOU!
With love and light,
founder - director - chief smasher

Southern Smash is thrilled to announce a new partnership that will bring Young Minds Advocacy's resources in front of The Mighty's wide-reaching readership. Young Minds Advocacy will now have a growing home page on The Mighty and appear on many stories on the site.
The Mighty is a story-based health community focused on improving the lives of people facing disease, disorder, mental illness and disability. More than half of Americans are facing serious health conditions or medical issues. They want more than information. They want to be inspired. The Mighty publishes real stories about real people facing real challenges.
We're dedicated to helping people with eating disorders in their lives. With this partnership, we'll be able to help even more people.
We encourage you to submit a story to The Mighty and make your voice heard.
