Course description

Eating Disorder Awareness

Eating disorders are detrimental to human health. They are serious and often cause fatal illnesses that hamper normal eating habits.

It is estimated that 1.6 million people in the UK suffer from at least one eating disorder. Although, this figure is likely to be much larger due to some people not receiving the help that they need.

The mental illness affects all ages, ethnic groups and races. Unlike other mental illnesses, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate. Therefore, it is important to promote eating disorder awareness, to help prevent the condition. This course has been designed specifically for this purpose.

First, it defines eating disorders and differentiates them from disordered eating and dieting.

Next, we cover the causes of eating disorders and various types of disorders that you need to know about.

It then states the various signs to look out for, when assessing or diagnosing an eating disorder. The various treatments available for the most common eating disorders are discussed.

The course also covers myths around eating disorders and how to prevent the conditions.
