Every 62 minutes a person dies from an eating disorder, where eating disorders are the number one leading cause of mental health related deaths. Some possible factors, explored and discussed in today's show, include untrue and unhealthy beliefs, and pressures of unrealistic expectations with our relationships and judgments with our bodies, and with food. Additionally there may be inappropriate association of these beliefs and pressures to self worth and self identity, as we are told from social media, diet culture, and even our own narratives.
According to the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Eating disorders in young men and women are on the rise (Source). In the United States alone, as many as 10% of females are reported to suffer from a clinical eating disorder. When you consider non-reports, males and eating related issues like binge eating, the number can be much more significant. So how do we know if our child is struggling with an eating related issues? How do we talk to them and how do we find help?
On today's show, Michelle Felton, LMHC, CEDS, is back. Michelle is the Clinical Director of Laurel Hill in Medford, MA and has her own private practice as well.
