Eating Disorders & ADHD: What You Need to Know About ARFID, Anorexia, and Others

February 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MST


EXPERT: Christine Peat, Ph.D.

Eating disorders are serious mental health conditions that often go undetected and untreated. An estimated 28 million Americans will struggle with an eating disorder at some point in their lifetime, but only some of these individuals will receive the care they need. Given the high rate of comorbidity between eating disorders and ADHD, it’s important for families, caregivers, and individuals with ADHD to be well-informed about the symptoms and treatments for different types of eating disorders. This is particularly true for diagnoses that are relatively new or understudied like atypical anorexia nervosa and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID).

In this webinar you will learn:

  • About atypical anorexia nervosa and its symptoms
  • About ARFID and its symptoms
  • About strategies that adults and caregivers can deploy to address eating disorders alongside ADHD
  • When to see a specialist to seek further care
