With Dr. Kalam Sutandar, MD, MSc, FRCPC, Psychiatrist, Bellwood Health Services

Eating Disorders are deadly. According to the National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC), these disorders have “the second highest mortality rate of all mental illnesses, second to opioid addiction.” Cardiac disease and suicide are the leading causes of death. Moreover, these are illnesses that do not discriminate. People of all ages, ethnicities, genders, size, or background can be struggling with Eating Disorders. Patients diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder are suffering more than ever, with limited access to services that just aren’t enough to effectively treat these highly complex problems.
