Eating disorders can affect anyone of any age and children are a particularly vulnerable group. School staff are ideally placed to spot the early signs of an eating disorder and potential factors in an eating disorder’s development, such as trouble with peers and academic pressure.

Beat Eating Disorders

Beat provide a range of tools and training courses for schools, healthcare professionals, parents and students designed to enable staff help pupils into treatment quickly.

With training from the UK’s eating disorder charity, you’ll learn how to pick up on early psychological, behavioural and physical signs of eating disorders, how to approach someone you’re concerned about, and what you can do to help them into the treatment they need.
