    Resources for Eating Disorders

    Reviewed Eating Disorders Information Resources
    MentalHelp.net
    Retrieved February 2, 2011

    • The Eating Disorder Site
      An eating disorder information source that includes different aspects from symptoms, causes, side effects, and treatment, with organizations, postings from sufferers, definitions, recovery, and support (both online and offline). This site is very helpful. The navigation of this site is easy with an informative site map, and the graphics are simple, yet still manage to look nice.

    • Something Fishy
      Excellent site that has oodles of information about eating disorders, links to the Eating Disorder FAQ, poems, chat rooms, and stories from others suffering from bulimia and anorexia. If you have an eating disorder, or know someone who does that you care about, this is the site to check out and read thoroughly. Updated frequently, well-designed, and a pleasure to visit time and time again. The authors also maintain sites at something-fishy.com and something-fishy.net.

    • Eating-Disorders.Net
      Dedicated to raising awareness, providing educational information and resources, and offering hope to those who suffer and their loved-ones. Site includes definitions, signs and symptoms, questionnaire, stories and poems from sufferers, articles by professionals, an international treatment finder, a recovery starting point, online support forums and chat, and much much more. This is a mirror site for something-fishy.org

    • Body Image Betrayal & Related Issues
      The Body Image Betrayal & Related Issues (BIBRI) homepage is the starting point for information regarding eating disorders and related issues, including obsessive compulsive disorder, abuse, and violence/rape. It offers various links, as well as personal experiences, poetry and a large list of alternative suggestions. It also openly discusses therapy abuse.

    • Eating Disorders
      Lots of information to help individuals along the way to recovery. Information ranges from signs and symptoms to relapse warning signs.

    • The Royal College of Psychiatrists 'Help is at Hand' Leaflet Series
      The Royal College of Psychiatrists' 'Help is at Hand' Series. The first leaflet was published seven years ago and the topics covered are continually expanding. Over four million leaflets have now been produced by the College.

    • Eating Disorders and Figure Skating
      A website offering articles and information concerning various eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia and eating disorder "not otherwise specified". This is a subsite of a larger figureskating website and the information (although applicable to all) is intended for an audience of figure skaters.

    • BDDCentral
      BDD Central is a good introduction to the often misunderstood and rarely discussed illness, Body Dysmorphic Disorder. While the information on the site is basic, when coupled with personal accounts and links to other BDD-related websites make it an important resource for people wishing to learn about Body Dysmorphic Disorder. The background colours and the fonts used in the website make the material a bit difficult to read, but still a good site.

    • EDReferral - Eating Disorders Treatment and Referral Center
      The Eating Disorder Referral and information center website is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of eating disorders. Here you will find informative articles and contact information for therapists in the United States specializing in treatment of eating disorders.

    • Eating Disorder Recovery at Poppink.Com
      Support, education and treatment opportunities for people with eating disorders and those who love them. The site contains articles on eating disorder recovery issues, an online discussion forum, DSM-IV-TR eating disorder description, and articles and links to more information.

    • Living With Food: The Science Supporting Eating Disorder Treatment
      This blog is written by directors and staff members at the Cleveland Clinic for Eating Disorders, which provides clinically proven treatments and bulimia & anorexia support groups. Topics include Anorexia, Bulimia, and Binge Eating, as well as discussions of current news, research, events, and more. The posts are well-written and definitely worth checking out if these topics are of interest to you.

    • Maudsley Parents
      This is a volunteer organization of parents who have helped their children recover from Anorexia and Bulimia through the use of a family-based treatment known as the Maudsley approach, an evidence-based therapy for Eating Disorders. The website includes information about the approach, frequently asked questions, family stories, videos, and more.

    • UCSD Eating Disorder Research
      The Eating Disorders program at UCSD is employing new treatments based on science and research into the neurobiology of Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. While the site exists to promote their specific treatment program and provides information on how to receive treatment, they also include a lot of nice information on Eating Disorders. There's an Eating Disorders 101 section that includes videos, web resources, books, and articles. They also have a research section that focuses on current studies, genetic studies, and brain imaging work. Definitely worth checking out to gain an understanding of Eating Disorder research.

    • Pediatric Eating Disorders
      While the main purpose of this site is to describe the Eating Disorders program available at the University of Chicago Medical Center, the website also includes some nice information about various treatment options for pediatric Eating Disorders. In addition to in-patient hospitalization or day treatment, they also describe outpatient treatments including Family Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Approaches, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Psychodynamic Approaches, Feminist Approaches, and Nutritional Counseling. The site also provides links to other sites that provide more detail about various approaches.
