Eating Disorder Handbook for Medical Professionals

Common and commonly ignored.

Binge eating disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder in the United States. 

And yet, society has an image of eating disorders that BED doesn’t necessarily fit. 

In an era where mental well-being is challenged like never before, eating disorders emerge more frequently. Almost 29 million Americans, or 9% of the population, will face this silent struggle in their lifetime.

Alarmingly, eating disorders have the second highest mortality rate of all mental health disorders. And yet, education on early intervention, best practices, and treatment protocols is sorely lacking.

Medical professionals play a pivotal role in the early identification and intervention of eating disorders. We understand the potential gaps in support you might encounter when addressing issues of eating disorders and body distress with your clientele. Regardless of your profession – be it in HR, education, or healthcare –

many professionals are inadequately equipped or trained on this crucial topic. 

Early detection is highly influential in a successful recovery. Equip yourself with tools, knowledge, and strategies to help recognize and address the signs of eating disorders, ensuring early detection and timely intervention.

Together, we can make a difference.
