Fans Are Pouring Their Love And Appreciation For Camila Mendes After Revealing She Suffered From An Eating Disorder

Last weekend, Project HEAL held their third annual Bay Area Gala. Founded in 2008, Project HEAL is a non-profit organization that provides funding for treatment to those struggling with eating disorders and promotes positive body image.

Amongst those who attended and spoke at the gala was “Riverdale” star Camila Mendes. Prior to speaking at the event, the Brazilian-American actress revealed her personal experience with eating disorders, which lead her to support the non-profit.

Here is what Mendes shared on her Instagram page a day before Project HEAL’s gala:

There was a huge outpour of love and appreciation towards Mendes not only from people currently dealing with eating disorders, but from those who have been able to overcome them.

Thank you, Camila, for putting your “Riverdale” star power to good use. ???
