About Arise
Care to heal your body and mind

Someone dies of an eating disorder every 52 minutes. This isn’t a niche problem — 5 million Americans will experience this life-threatening condition every year, yet up to 90% will never have access to the care they need. Arise was started by and for people who have lived with eating disorders themselves to build the first tech-driven collaborative care model for eating disorders. Delivered virtually through an app and video sessions, Arise brings together peer support with person-centered clinical care to bring people the right care while expanding access to many more people — including underserved communities like BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and others who don’t fit the incorrect stereotype of what an eating disorder “looks like.” Together, we are building a new kind of care where healing is accessible to all. Arise is backed by leading VCs and growing quickly to expand access to eating disorder care across new states & populations this year.
