“It really works to have a mix of contributors who can talk about the issues from all angles. So you’ve got the expert view, which is so informative – and really important to helping with early detection – but you’re also hearing from people with lived experience of eating disorders, their family and carers, reinforcing the message that recovery is always possible.”
Stacey Dooley, author of ‘Are You Really OK?: Understanding Britain’s Mental Health Crisis’, UK.
“This book is an excellent combination of professional and lived experience voices resulting in a comprehensive and easily digested
outline of Eating Disorders; an illness that is seldom well understood but which people do recover from, when treated. The authors eloquently explain important topics such as assessments, treatment, medical emergencies and the diversity of how eating disorders can affect anyone of any age. I recommend this book for health and school professionals as well as families and friends.”
Professor Tim Kendall, NHS Mental Health National Clinical Director, UK.
