Learning About Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are potentially deadly, biologically-based mental illnesses of unknown origin. Recent research has suggested that they may be inherited, but families do not cause eating disorders and they are not the result of a choice on behalf of the patient.

Types of eating disorders include anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, among others. These conditions affect millions of Americans of all ages, both male and female, and most commonly begin in adolescence. As the illness progresses, mental health and quality of life may diminish, leading to poor self-esteem, anxiety and depression.

The good news, however, is that eating disorders are treatable and families can be a powerful tool in that process. Learn more about the Family-Based Treatment process at Goryeb Children’s Hospital >

The Eating Disorders Program is located at Goryeb Children’s Center at Overlook Medical Center.
