The Onset and Persistence of Eating Disorder Symptoms: What Places Children and Adolescents at Risk and How Can We Promote Resilience?

Karina Allen

Eating disorders affect up to 10% of adolescent women and a smaller proportion of adolescent men. They are associated with considerable psychosocial and physiological morbidity and carry the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder, equal with substance misuse. As such, eating disorders are also a substantial burden on health services. Despite this, detailed data regarding the onset and persistence of eating disorders in the community are rare. This makes it difficult to develop and effectively implement prevention and early intervention programmes for eating pathology. This presentation summarises new data in this area, with reference to two prospective cohort studies in Western Australia.
