Eating Disorders

The Eating Disorders team work with young people aged up to 18 who may have features of an Eating Disorder, his includes young people who may restrict the amount and types of foods they eat, or who binge or make themselves sick. We give advice to young people about achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, including helping them to gain weight if needed. We provide physical health checks and refer young people for therapy if required, such as Family therapy or CBT. We can also offer support to young people in improving their self-esteem and body confidence which can often be affected in young people with an Eating Disorder. Our Eating Disorder team works very closely with other teams, the family and schools to help young people to recover.
