Support for eating disorders
Today’s culture puts a lot of focus on being thin, but if someone seems too focused on being thin, it may be cause for concern. Eating too little or intentionally throwing up after eating are symptoms of two serious diseases – anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. Although more common in women, these diseases can affect men, too. Here4TN offers many different treatment options.
