This half day course is run in partnership between Leeds CAMHS Specialist Eating Disorder Service and the University of Leeds. It will provide a basic understanding of the types of eating disorder, their presentation, and who is affected. Understanding the functional nature of eating disorders in managing mood and social relationships will help place this within a broader context of young people’s mental health and well-being. This course will also provide practical information to help support young people with an eating disorder.
