Eating problems can take a number of different forms from anorexia and bulimia to overeating and binge eating. 

They can start as a result of trauma or another mental health condition as well as wishing to achieve an unrealistic body image. 

They can be dangerous and can have serious health implications if your weight drops too low or rises too high. 

In this leaflet, you’ll find information on various eating disorders as well as help on where to get support to help you through it.
