If you or someone you know has an eating disorder, including anorexia or bulimia, we have an Eating Disorders Team that offers the support you need.
An eating disorder affects people both physically and emotionally. Students who have an eating disorder may have extreme feelings about their weight, as well as extreme behaviors involving food. To learn more about eating disorders, please visit the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) website.
Counselors provide short-term individual and group therapy aimed at helping students reduce symptoms, understand the psychology of eating disorders, increase their ability to express emotions, and learn to define themselves in ways other than body size and food intake.
Within the Eating Disorder Treatment Team, the registered dietitian focuses on nutritional restoration, education regarding myths about food and body size, normalizing food habits, expanding food choices and helping to rebuild a healthy relationship with food.
Healthcare providers evaluate, monitor and educate students with disordered eating. They work closely with the mental health and nutrition experts on campus to support recovery.
