What are eating disorders?

Mental Health
The
capacity
of each and all of us to feel, think and act in ways that enhance our
ability
to enjoy life and deal with
challenges
we face.
Mental Disorder
It’s when that mental capacity /
ability
break down.

Health conditions that are characterized by
alterations
in thinking, mood, or behavior associated with
distress
or impaired functioning.
Back to Jenni...
Why can't we all just get along?
Eating disorders are abnormal eating habits that can threaten your health or even your life. They include:

Anorexia nervosa
: Individuals believe they’re fat even when they’re dangerously thin and restrict their eating to the point of starvation.


Bulimia nervosa
: Individuals eat excessive amounts of food, then purge by making themselves vomit or using laxatives.

Binge eating:
Individuals have out-of-control eating patterns, but don’t purge.
