#endthestigma - Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are more just than a person’s relationship with food. They are complex mental health disorders that often require intervention to support recovery.

Eating disorders are a range of psychological conditions that cause unhealthy eating habits to develop. They might start with an obsession with food, body weight, or body shape. Those with eating disorders can have a variety of symptoms. However, most include the severe restriction of food, food binges, or purging behaviours like vomiting or over-exercising.

Although eating disorders can affect people of any gender at any life stage, they’re most often reported in adolescents and young women. The number of people in Australia with an eating disorder at any given time is estimated to be around 1 million, or approximately 4% of the population.

In severe cases, eating disorders can cause serious health consequences. A range of treatments and supports are available. For more information go to Butterfly Foundation

We had a great time at our Healthy Bodies Support Healthy Minds Community Walk for people of all abilities today at ANZAC Oval. Participants enjoyed Footy 4 Life with AFL Central Australia and NO MORE AU, then joined in the walk around the oval which included an obstacle course followed by a healthy meal.

It was a beautiful day to be outside enjoying some gentle exercise and each others company.
