Eating disorders change someone’s attitude towards food and their body in a way that influences their behaviour and eating habits. For example, an eating disorder can cause you to spend a lot of time thinking about your weight and body shape, and do things like avoid eating as much as possible, or exercise more than is healthy.
Established in 1993 and now with charitable status, the Scottish Eating Disorders Interest Group is a unique supportive forum that integrates professionals, carers, those in recovery and any other interested members of the public. When it was founded in 1993, SEDIG acted as a bridge across the regions in Scotland which were starved of resources and specialist services. In fact, there were no official inpatient or specialty services at the time it was founded!
