  • Online support for eating disorders

    Created: 28/02/2018

    New resources give young people and families advice and peer support.

    Young people struggling with eating disorders are being provided with peer support and advice through new online resources.

    An online peer support tool allows young people to pair with a trained volunteer who has recovered from an eating disorder (ED) such as anorexia and bulimia.

    This is alongside a new website, the CarED platform, that hosts video tutorials and links for parents and carers, and a database of services across the country. The Scottish Government funded NHS Lothian to build the site, and the health board has worked with eating disorders charity Beat and young people who have recovered from EDs to develop the resources.
