Eating Disorders

Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, orthorexia and other eating concerns are complex mental conditions.


Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, orthorexia, body dysmorphia and other eating concerns are complex mental conditions, typically characterised by an unhealthy or disrupted pattern of eating. This can include behavioural symptoms such as excessive exercising.

These conditions are characterised by poor eating behaviours, distorted beliefs and extreme concerns about food, food preparation and body size, shape or weight.

These concerns tend to be forms of obsessive-compulsive behaviours and are the symptoms of complex mental health issues.

Eating disorders can be managed and treated using an integrated approach.

Impact of Untreated Eating Disorders

Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, orthorexia and other eating concerns are complex mental conditions.

Untreated eating disorders can have a negative impact on a person's mental and physical health. Poor eating behaviours, distorted beliefs, and extreme concerns about food, food preparation or body size, shape or weight can lead to serious health problems.

Untreated eating disorders can affect self-esteem, may lead to the development of eating disorders such as bulimia nervosa or anorexia nervosa and cause emotional symptoms such as feeling powerless or out of control.
