Eating Disorders
Approximately 24 million people in the U.S. struggle with an eating disorder. Almost 50%
of these people also meet the criteria for depression and one in four college-aged
women binges and purges as a weight-management technique. Eating disorders are
real, complex, and devastating conditions that can have serious consequences for
health, productivity, and relationships. They are not fads, phases or lifestyle choices.
Eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect a person’s
emotional and physical health. They have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric
disorder. Tragically, for a lot of us, these disorders can be all-consuming. Binge Eating.
Obesity. High cholesterol. Diabetes. Anorexia Nervosa. Bulimia. Never-ending diets. The
poor self-image and depression that often follow.
