Eating Disorders such an anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorders are complex and potentially life threatening mental illnesses that interfere with a person’s well-being and ability to function. Eating disorders are treatable illnesses influenced by both biological and environmental factors and benefit from early detection and intervention.
Eating disorders can affect any gender, age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and socioeconomic class.
While anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder are the most commonly known eating disorders, a person may still be significantly ill despite not meeting all of the specified criteria of one of these diagnoses.
