Service description:
Problems with food can begin when it is used to cope with those times when someone is bored, anxious, angry, lonely, ashamed or sad. Food becomes a problem when it is used to help people to cope with painful situations or feelings, or to relieve stress perhaps without them even realising it.

Most often, when people talk about eating disorders, they think of Anorexia and Bulimia. There is now growing awareness that some people suffer a mix of eating disorder behaviours or may be affected by some symptoms of Anorexia or Bulimia but not others. Everyone experiences their eating disorder in their own way. Whatever form it takes, an eating disorder can be beaten. Understanding an eating disorder and having the information about where you can go to find out more is a good first step towards beating an eating disorder.

Beat provides online support and a network of UK-wide self-help groups to help adults and young people in the UK beat their eating disorders.
