Om boka

This book provides readers with information to better understand eating disorders, written in accessible language for teens and young adults-those most at risk for these potentially deadly mental disorders.

Eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, are some of the most commonly diagnosed mental disorders. They are also the deadliest: in the United States, an individual dies as the result of an eating disorder every hour.
