Large study examines how rare it is for people with eating disorders to seek help, especially US males and ethnic minorities

We all know eating disorders are treatable and that treatment can work, but how many people even seek help?

“This was the first study in a nationally representative sample of US adults to examine rates of help-seeking, including by sex and ethnic/racial differences, across DSM-5-defined EDs. These findings emphasize the need to develop strategies to encourage help-seeking among individuals with EDs, particularly among men and ethnic/racial minorities.”
