Chrysalis Center is committed to supporting and engaging with the Wilmington community in an effort to raise awareness about the risks that surround eating disorders and other mental health issues and the need for prompt intervention and effective treatment. As a multidisciplinary group, we offer specialized workshops and presentations to other medical professionals as well as the general public.
Topics of interest often include eating disorders, body image, nutrition, bariatrics, trauma, and substance abuse. If you are interested in inviting one of our clinicians to a speaking engagement, please contact us at (910) 790-9500 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year, the Chrysalis Center staff donates our time and resources to host or attend community events and use them as a platform to educate the public. Events we present annually include the Wilmington Walk from Obesity and National Eating Disorder Awareness Week.
The Walk from Obesity is held at Burnt Mill Business Park every spring. The event has attracted over 100 participants and raised thousands of dollars for the Obesity Action Coalition and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. It is a ‘set your own pace event,’ which encourages individuals to walk or run as much as they are able.
During Eating Disorder Awareness Week, the Chrysalis Center hosts a variety of activities, including an art show. Artwork is created by individuals in the community and represent personal journeys of recovery from an eating disorder. The pieces are displayed at Chrysalis Center to help raise awareness and support the message behind National Eating Disorder Awareness Week.
We participate in a variety of other community events. Check our events calendar or follow us on Facebook to see where we’ll be next.
