This program profiles four young people who've had eating disorders. Their experiences highlight how this illness is not just about food, but about struggling with loss of emotional control. The newer approaches using cognitive behavioral therapy and anti-depressants are explained.
Russell Marx, MD, Clinical Director of the Eating Disorders Program at the Medical Center at Princeton, and Marcia Herring, EdD, MPH, RD at the Dartmouth College Health Service, show what's being done to prevent and treat one of the most lethal categories of mental illness.
