A talk by Dr E Jane B Morris, Consultant Psychiatrist, The Eden Unit Royal Cornhill Hospital, Aberdeen; Lead Clinician, North of Scotland Managed Clinical Network for Eating Disorders.

Eleven percent of girls will have an eating disorder during their teens, according to American research. Boys too are now increasingly being diagnosed with disorders of obsessive weight-losing behaviour, such as compulsive exercise. Anorexia nervosa has the highest mortality of any psychiatric disorder, whilst surviving sufferers and their families have to live through dreadful experiences. Under this backdrop, Dr Morris discussed Scotland’s struggle to confront, prevent and manage eating disorders over the past 50 years, and examined the challenges that lie ahead.
