Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are illnesses of body image and food intake. Behaviours like fasting, binging or purging are used as coping mechanisms. Someone with an eating disorder may have a negative body image which may result in distorted ideas about shape and size. If you or someone you love can relate to this, you may need some support.
