iStock_000010386068XSmall.medium.jpgApproximately 20-30 million Americans, of all genders and from diverse backgrounds, will suffer from an eating disorder. Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder are just a few examples of feeding and eating related disorders.

Eating disorders frequently appear during adolescence but may also develop during childhood, young adulthood, middle age or even later in life. Sufferers often exhibit warning signs and symptoms such as an obsession with or avoidance of food, weight and appearance. These obsessions can be strong enough to disrupt an individual’s daily activities, relationships and physical health.

If you are concerned that you, a friend, or family member may have an eating disorder, please follow the link below (click on "Start the Online Self Assessment") to participate in a brief online assessment. This process will help you identify behaviors potentially indicative of an eating disorder and provide suggestions about what steps to take next.

Please note: the results of this assessment do not constitute a formal medical diagnosis. If you have concerns, you should see your doctor or call us at (410) 938.5252 to schedule an official evaluation. If you are a health or mental health provider looking for resources to use in screening patients, please visit our Medical Professionals page.
