What We Need to Know About Eating Disorders in Educational Contexts
Eating disorders (ED) is one of the most prevalent mental illness among adolescents (Sundgot-Borgen, 2013). Approximately one on two student in college presents symptoms of ED. Those symptoms interfere with academic achievement, interpersonal relationships and global development (Fairburn, 2008). While the majority of studies about ED are focused on the person with ED or the significant other, this research wants to draw the picture of ED in a Canadian college from student’s point of view as well as teacher’s (Kgnismith, 2013).
