Eating disorders awareness week

This is eating disorder awareness week and Island Health is trying to make sure people know about this illness and decrease any stigma associated with it.

Keva Glynn director of mental health and substance use at Island Health says there are three kinds of disordered eating: anorexia, bulimia and an unspecific form.

She says there are many treatment options for people with this illness.

Glynn says there is one message she really wants to get across.

To find out about local treatment supports for people with eating disorders head to the VIHA website.
