Mental Health and Eating Disorders

People with eating disorders experience serious disturbances in their eating patterns, such as severe and unhealthy reduction in their food intake or overating. Did you know that mental illnesses commonly co-occur with eating disorders? Mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety and alcohol/drug addiction are sometimes found in people with eating disorders. Some of these disorders may influence the development of an eating disorder, and some are consequences of it. Join Eating Recovery Center of Houston in collaboration with Mental Health Health America of Greater Houston to discuss Mental Health and Eating Disorders. 

Training audience: Open to all level of professionals, college students, teachers and community health workers.
