This area of work will be supporting mental health teams across the region to speed up diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders in young people aged 16 to 25.
An eating disorder is an unhealthy attitude to food, which can take over an individual’s life and cause illness. It can involve eating too much or too little, or becoming obsessed with your weight and body shape. The most common eating disorders are anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating disorder (BED), and other specified feeding or eating disorder (OSFED).
This is a national AHSN Network adoption and spread initiative. More information about the eating disorders programme of work is available here.
