Eating Disorders: Hiding in Plain Sight

An eating disorder is a serious mental illness. In fact, anorexia nervosa has the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disorder.

But despite serious consequences for health, productivity and relationships, it’s estimated that only one in ten people with an eating disorder gets treated. In many cases, their appearance or illness is not obvious.

So what do employers need to know about eating disorders and the treatments available for employees, children and family members who may be suffering in silence?
