Bridging the Gap

University is an exciting time but can also be a time of significant change and pressure. Students who are vulnerable can develop an eating disorder; students who already have one may find it gets worse. The university environment can mask symptoms and make it harder for students to stay connected to treatment services and their support network.

Professionals are taught how the university environment could contribute to an eating disorder’s development, and how to spot the early signs of one. Also, the types of challenges students face with eating disorders, how to approach them to get help and assessing whether a student is well enough for study.

Beat do vital work in sharing knowledge about eating disorders and helping prevent what could be huge issues in someone’s life as well as aiding them through the treatment process. It’s so important to have this training to equip yourself on how you can play a part.University professional
