Common diagnoses

Common diagnoses:

*This diagnosis is made when there are serious signs of an eating disorder, but it doesn’t ‘fit’ all the criteria for anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa.

Treatment

Treatments can include a number of options – most commonly a family-based approach, which will include the whole family.

You may also be referred to a support group, or recommended for individual therapy.

We will work with you to establish what options will work best for your own personal recovery

Myth busting

We’ve worked with young people to identify common myths about eating disorders. See our myth buster to uncover the facts behind eating disorders.
