Eating Disorders Treatment

Eating Disorders are complex mental health conditions where individuals may struggle with recurrent patterns of obsessive thoughts or compulsions related to food, body image, and eating behaviors. These challenges often disrupt daily functioning and overall well-being.

Eating Disorders

Overview

Eating disorders are a widespread physical and mental health condition, impacting approximately 4% of Australians each year.

Anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, orthorexia, body dysmorphia, and other eating-related challenges are intricate mental health conditions that often manifest as disrupted patterns of eating. These conditions may involve symptoms like excessive exercise. Rooted in distorted beliefs and heightened concerns about food, its preparation, and body image, these behaviours are indicative of complex mental health issues with obsessive-compulsive elements.
