Can You See Me?

NI Science Festival: Can You See Me?

Thursday 20 Feb 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Anorexia Nervosa is the most dangerous psychiatric condition, and yet only 13% of those affected are engaged in professional help.

The condition may, at one level, be painfully visible – but is poorly understood, often overlooked and causes a great deal of anxiety for everyone involved. Dr David Coyle, Regional Consultant Psychiatrist for the Eating Disorder Service, will give a talk aiming to improve understanding and increase visibility of the condition. This will include the origins of illness, the types of approaches used, how to seek help and a sprinkling of the underlying science.
