NCEED: Training. Educating. Leading.


The National Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders (NCEED) is the nation’s first center of excellence dedicated to eating disorders.

Founded in 2018 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, NCEED’s mission is to advance education and training of healthcare providers and to promote public awareness of eating disorders and eating disorder treatment.

Based at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NCEED includes clinicians, researchers, and advocates who specialize in eating disorder care and are committed to providing up-to-date, reliable, and evidence-based information.

NCEED’s goal is to ensure that all individuals with eating disorders are identified, treated, and supported in recovery. Though eating disorders are serious conditions, they can be identified and treated effectively – particularly when providers and the public have the knowledge and skills necessary to make a difference.
