Studies look at Young Adults and Mental Health Issues

Then why didnt they look for eating disorders in their studies?

A limitation of the analysis is that it did not include eating disorders, said Dr. Harry Brandt, director for the Center for Eating Disorders at Sheppard Pratt and head of the psychiatry department at St. Joseph Medical Center.

At least half of the patients he sees at the eating disorder center are young adults, he said. “I was very surprised that among all the diagnoses, they did not look at eating disorders, since those are among the most deadly and serious disorders of that age range,” he said.
