Mental Health Awareness Week – Eating Disorders Focus

by Ellern Mede Eating Disorder Treatment

May 18 – 24 is Mental Health Awareness Week, supported by the Mental Health Foundation in the UK. The theme of 2020 is ‘kindness’. One category of mental illness that is particularly life threatening is the many types of eating disorder that blight people’s lives, requiring intensive treatment, sometimes as outpatients and sometimes as inpatients. If you have an eating disorder, be kind to yourself and seek help.


Ellern Mede is a leading UK clinic which offers outpatient as well as inpatient treatments for all types of eating disorder. 1.25 million people in the UK are living with an eating disorder in 2020. When you add to that all the people they are close to such as friends and family, that means around 5 million people are affected and struggling to cope with eating disorders. If you or a member of your family or a loved one needs help, please tell us <https://ellernmede.org/private-referral/> .


Our eating disorder clinics in London can tailor an affordable outpatient programme to get you straight into treatment without disrupting your many other commitments. If this is a problem you have been overlooking, hoping it will go away or that you will ‘grow out of it’, let this Mental Health Awareness Week be the week that you make a positive step and start your recovery journey. Email outpatients@ellernmede.org and we will confidentially contact you and talk over how we can help.


Although Ellern Mede is a private specialist service, due to the nature of an eating disorder, it is very important for your outpatient treatment that we do work closely with your NHS or private GP. As a first step please obtain a GP referral, to ours, or any other specialist eating disorder service, and also ask your GP if they will agree to arrange initial and regular follow up blood tests which can be shared with our specialists.
