Eating Disorders and Young People: A Virtual Discussion on Race Equality

Anyone can be affected by an eating disorder, but eating disorders do not affect everyone equally.  Some young people are less likely to be recognised and more likely to face barriers to receiving treatment. 

We want to reduce stigma and improve access to eating disorder services by trying to understand the experiences of young people from underrepresented communities.

Join the conversation and be part of the change you want to see...

What’s your story? Join us and tell us your experiences of:

  • Accessing adult eating disorder services
  • Successes and concerns
  • Ideas on how to improve services for better outcomes

The Early Intervention Eating Disorders Programme, led by the AHSN network, is currently supporting 
mental health teams across England to speed up diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders in young 
people using the FREED model (First episode Rapid Early intervention for Eating Disorders). As part 
of this, Health Innovation Manchester and GMMH are looking to highlight and reduce barriers young 
people face accessing treatment.

If you are Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic , are aged 18—25, live in the Heywood, Middleton and 
Rochdale or Manchester areas* and have lived experience (past or present) of an eating disorder, 
then join our virtual space to share your experiences.

Join us on Microsoft Teams on
Wednesday 27th April 2022 from 6-7pm
Wednesday 4th May 2022 from 6-7pm

Please get in touch with Nasim Choudhri or Magdalene Sampson at by Monday 25th April if you would like to book a place and share your experience or 
if you would like more information, and please pass this message on.

We look forward to seeing you then.

*We are focusing on these geographical areas initially but we will be sharing learning across the 
other Greater Manchester areas
