Eating disorders (young people)

In this section you can find out about young people’s experiences of eating disorders by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film.

Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 39 young people, 10 men and 29 women, in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as realising something is wrong, therapy, body image, and working towards recovery.

We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
