    Descriptive info: Let's Talk Eating Disorders Schools Program (Update).. Presenter: Patricia Nash (Programs and Outreach Facilitator).. Last spring the Eating Disorder Foundation received a grant from the Dept of Health to implement a “Let’s Talk Eating Disorder School Program”.. The purpose of this program is to visit twenty-five schools across Newfoundland and Labrador and educate school professionals on eating disorders.. The presentation discusses such things as: what teachers need to be aware of related to eating disorders in the school system; how to be preventive; how to assist a young person who has an eating disorder and what services are available in St.. John’s and around the province for someone dealing with an eating disorder.. This fall this program has met with great success.. So far thirteen schools have accepted the invitation for staff to hear the presentation.. Schools have been generous with their time allowing the talk during a staff meeting or have arranged a meeting just for this informative talk.. The concentration this fall was on schools outside of the St.. John’s area and we are delighted at the response from schools.. Staff members have been very grateful to get this much needed information and are very appreciative to the Eating Disorder Foundation for doing this type of Outreach Program to all areas of the province.. Some comments from school administrator/guidance counselors:.. “Thank you for the wonderful presentation.. It will definitely enable us to help any of our students who may be faced with an eating disorder in the future.. Once again, it was very much appreciated and I hope that you continue to spread your important message throughout the province”.. “It was very informative and the staff was impressed with it.. ”.. “A wonderful presentation.. Public health nurses have been invited to attend the school presentation and feedback from nursing staff has been wonderful; they learn information about services that they did not know before this.. A number of guidance counselors in schools have been very grateful to learn of services available and have reached out now for resources that they were not aware of before this Schools Program.. The schools participating in the program so far have been:.. * O’Donel High School, Mount Pearl.. * Holy Trinity High School, Torbay.. * St.. John Bosco, Shea Heights.. * Fatima Academy, St.. Brides.. * Stella Maris Academy, Trepessay.. * Indian River Academy, Springdale.. * Pearson Academy, Wesleyville.. * Leo Burke Academy, Bishop’s Falls.. * Lakeside Academy, Buchans.. * Lewisporte Intermediate, (with attendance from staff of Lewisporte Collegiate and Lewisporte Academy), Lewisporte.. * Glovertown Academy, Glovertown.. * Fogo Island Central Academy, Fogo Island.. * A..

The Foundation has received a number of requests from schools in different parts of the province for this presentation and we hope to connect with these schools in 2012.. Schools in places like Port Saunders, Doyle, Botwood, The Pathfinder Center in Stephenville and St.. Lewis in Labrador have expressed both an interest and need to hear the presentation.. The Foundation is examining how to present to some of these schools by teleconference or webinar.. In Jan and February the Schools program will be offered to staff in the St.. John’s and surrounding area.. Invitations will soon be sent to all Junior and Senior high schools in the area.. We are delighted at the success of this program over the last few months and see its’ great benefit in helping staff work with students with an eating disorder.. This type of program is helping us to not only educate staff but also to be proactive in getting help to students in need and therefore helping to facilitate their chance of a good recovery  ...   group is to respond to the needs of families who are supporting a love one who has been diagnosed with an eating disorder..

To book a presentation please contact Tina at 722-0500.. Resource Material Loaner Program.. One of the most important actions you can take when you are supporting a love one who has been diagnosed with an eating disorder is to educate yourself..

    Descriptive info: Understanding Eating Disorders.. Eating disorders are illnesses that cause a person to adopt harmful eating habits.. They are most common among adolescent girls and boys, and frequently occur along with other psychiatric disorders such as depression and anxiety disorders.. The poor nutrition associated with eating disorders can harm organs in the body and, in severe cases, lead to death.. The two most common types of eating disorder are anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.. Worries about weight, shape and eating are common, especially among teenage girls.. Being very overweight or obese can cause a lot of problems, particularly with health.. Quite often, someone who is overweight can lose weight simply by eating more healthily.. It sounds easy, but they may need help to find a way of doing this.. A lot of young people, many of whom are not overweight in the first place, want to be thinner.. They often try to lose weight by dieting or skipping meals.. For some, worries about weight becomes an obsession.. This can turn into a serious eating disorder.. Someone with anorexia nervosa worries all the time about being fat (even if they are skinny) and eats very little.. They lose a lot of weight and their periods stop.. Someone with bulimia nervosa also worries a lot about weight.. They alternate between eating next to nothing, and then having binges when they gorge themselves.. They vomit or take laxatives to control their weight.. Both of these eating disorders are more common in girls, but do occur in boys.. What are the signs of anorexia or bulimia?.. * Weight loss or unusual weight changes.. * Periods being irregular or stopping.. * Missing meals, eating very little and avoiding `fattening' foods.. * Avoiding eating in public, secret eating.. * Large amounts of food disappearing from the cupboards.. * Believing they are fat when underweight.. * Exercising excessively.. * Becoming preoccupied with food, cooking for other people.. * Going to the bathroom or toilet immediately after meals.. * Using laxatives and vomiting to control weight.. It may be difficult for parents or teachers to tell the difference between ordinary teenage dieting and a more serious problem.. If  ...   event, such as family breakdown, death or separation in the family, bullying at school or abuse.. * Sometimes, anorexia and bulimia may be a way of trying to feel in control if life feels stressful.. * More ordinary events, such as the loss of a friend, a teasing remark or school exams, may also be the trigger in a vulnerable person.. Where can I get help?.. If you think a young person may be developing an eating disorder, don't be afraid to ask them if they are worried about themselves.. Some young people will not want you to interfere.. These simple suggestions are useful to help young people to maintain a healthy weight and avoid eating disorders:.. * Eat regular meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner.. * Try to eat a `balanced' diet - one that contains all the types of food your body needs.. * Include carbohydrate foods such as bread, rice, pasta or cereals with every meal.. * Don't miss meals - long gaps encourage over-eating.. * Avoid sugary or high-fat snacks (try eating a banana instead of a bar of chocolate).. * Take regular exercise.. * Try not to be influenced by other people skipping meals or commenting on weight.. When professional help is needed.. When eating problems make family meals stressful, it is important to seek professional advice.. Your general practioner will be able to advise you about what specialist help is available locally and will be able to arrange a referral.. Working with the family is an important part of treatment.. If the eating disorder causes physical ill health, it is essential to get medical help quickly.. If the young person receives help from a specialist early on, admission to hospital is unlikely.. If untreated, there is a risk of infertility, thin bones (oesteoporosis), stunted growth and even death.. Some people are more at risk than others.. Risk factors include being female, being previously overweight and lacking self-esteem.. Sensitive or anxious individuals, who are having difficulty becoming independent are also more at risk.. The families of young people with eating disorders often find change or conflict particularly difficult, and may be unusually close or over-protective..

    Descriptive info: Center for Hope.. Bridge to Hope.. Janeway Adolescent Program.. People can, and do, recover from eating disorders, but professional help is almost always required.. Unfortunately, the longer symptoms are denied or ignored, the more difficult recovery will be.. If you or someone you know suffers from a possible eating disorder, it's important to seek help immediately.. Family members and friends can also benefit from information and help.. Many of us have difficulties with food, weight and body image.. These difficulties negatively affect our lives and our self-esteem.. If you are struggling with food and weight issues and these are causing distress in your life, then find support.. Don't wait until you have all the symptoms of a clinical eating disorder in order to get help.. You deserve help at every stage of your struggles.. Food and weight preoccupations occur on a continuum that stretches from behaviours such as constantly worrying about our body shape and what we eat to medically serious, clinical eating disorders, like anorexia or bulimia.. We struggle with a range of different food and weight issues.. Sometimes we believe that if we take control over our food, weight and shape, then we will solve other problems that we might be having, such as feeling that we don't fit into a social or professional group, or personal problems.. This pressure to take control over our feelings through controlling our bodies may result in restricting food intake, or over-exercising.. Often we believe that if we could only look a certain way we will have mastery over our lives.. But if we get caught in a cycle of dieting - in an attempt to take control of our lives - we, ironically, end with a sense of being out of control.. We may binge eat, then lose self-esteem, which leads to more dieting, then more binge eating, and so on and so on.. The development of a full-blown eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia often stems from this cycle.. Some people may not have anorexia or bulimia but may eat in binges or eat compulsively, and may also feel out of control and in need of help.. Any kind of disordered eating pattern can cause us to feel out of control, further lowering self-esteem.. The issue is not whether the patterns can be labelled with a particular diagnosis, but the degree to which they are  ...   you care about who has an eating disorder.. You may wonder what to say, or be worried about what will happen as a result.. These are legitimate fears.. Rest assured, however, there are things you can do to offer support.. Be Patient.. When you approach the individual for the first time, do not be surprised if they reject your expression of concern.. They may even react with anger and denial.. There is a lot of shame and pain that goes along with having an eating disorder.. It's also important not to rush the person, and instead recognize that it will take time for the person to make changes.. Be Knowledgeable.. It's important to understand that an eating disorder is a coping strategy that the individual uses to deal with deeper problems - problems may be too painful or difficult to deal with directly.. Remember: Eating disorders are not simply about not eating or vanity! This website can provide you with additional information that is worth learning, information you may also want to offer to your family member or friend.. Whether they act on it immediately or need more time to think is their decision to make.. Be Compassionate.. Eating disorders are a complex problem, and food and weight issues are only the symptoms of a deeper problem.. It's important to understand that the person would prefer to have healthier coping mechanisms and is doing the best they can at the moment.. Show compassion for the pain and confusion that the individual is experiencing.. Be Encouraging.. Encourage the person to see themselves as more than their eating disorder.. Do this by talking about other aspects of your lives, and of life more generally.. Affirm their strengths and interests that are unrelated to food or physical appearance.. Be Non-Judgmental.. It's important to express your own needs in the relationship, without blaming or shaming the other person.. Remember that the individual with the eating disorder will have to decide on when and how to get help, and what kind.. Support them by validating the healthy changes that the person does makes, however small they may be.. Remember that they can only get better at their own pace.. You can be supportive and gently give them information.. You can help them to see and consider alternatives.. You cannot make them get better.. Consult with professionals when a child is concerned..
