You’re invited for EHN Canada’s next educational webinar:

Concurrent Treatment: Eating Disorders & Addiction

With Cheryl Fiske, MSc(OT), OT Reg., MHSc, CHE,

Clinical Director, Bellwood Health Services

People of any age, race, gender, size, or background can be struggling with eating disorders. Eating disorders are deadly, and at least 1 million Canadians have a diagnosable condition. According to the National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC), eating disorders have “the second highest mortality rate of all mental illnesses, second to opioid addiction.” It is not uncommon for those with an eating disorder to struggle with other mental health diagnoses or substance issues, as well. Eating disorders may develop as maladaptive coping skills for mental health diagnoses, however, mental health issues may also develop as a result of eating disorder behaviors. Regardless, understanding the relationship between eating disorders and concurrent issues is key to effective diagnosis and treatment of the individual. Join Cheryl Fiske, Clinical Director at Bellwood Health Services, on Thursday, January 26 between 12-1pm EST as she further explains eating disorders and their relations with addictions.
