    “There isn’t enough support in place for teenagers with eating disorders”

    I’m Savannah Das and I am currently studying at Ashton Sixth Form College and I am doing a piece of research about there not being enough support in place for teenagers with eating disorders. I would greatly appreciate it if you could answer the following questions to help me along with my research.

    1.Do you think that there is enough support in place for teenagers with eating disorders?

    2.Where do you think teenagers receive help and support?

    Please state one.

    School/College/Clinics/H

    ospitals/Friends/Family

    3.Can you identify the signs and symptoms of someone who has developed or has an eating disorder?

    4.Are there enough people trained to help and support teenagers with eating disorders?

    Explain your answer:

    5.Is there any improvements that need to be made?

    Yes or No

    If yes please explain below:

    6.If a teacher or a colleague has noticed signs of someone with an eating disorder should they then keep it confidential and only between themselves or should they let that students’ parents know?

    7.What sort of training do you think people need to help and support teenagers with an eating disorder?

    8.Do you think schools/colleges should be allowed to help and support teenagers with an eating disorder?

    9.Do you think there should be more awareness of teenagers with an eating disorder?

  • 1.Do you think that there is enough support in place for teenagers with eating disorders?

    No - and not enough awareness amongst people about what and ED is - many still see it as a fad - trying to be like models - just a diet - specialist help is not sufficient - just feeding ED sufferers into the NHS or CAHMS system is not the answer - it really needs specially trained counsellors, and dieticians.  Also GPs and school/college counsellors need to be educated in what the signs are and how and where to refer young people.

    2.Where do you think teenagers receive help and support?

    Sometimes CAHMS helps - the young person gets the referral - which relies on someone spotting/recognising the problem - and even then its often a long waiting time by which time the problem is often chronic.  BEAT and ABC have helplines for young people - but I know ABC - who receive no Government funding - is in-undated with calls seeking help - with very little resource to provide it.

  • Thank you
