Disordered eating and eating disorders are complex issues that can impact all genders, ages, races, ethnicities and sexual orientations. At CU Boulder, we believe in the importance of supporting students who struggle with disordered eating and eating disorders.
A collaborative approach
We have a multidisciplinary treatment team that includes a medical provider, psychiatric provider, mental health provider and registered dietitian nutritionist. This unique collaborative care approach helps identify students who are struggling with challenges associated with disordered eating.
Research has shown that multidisciplinary treatment teams on college campuses help students with eating disorders stay in therapy longer and leave therapy with planned terminations.
Our team will assess students who are at risk for eating disorders, including Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and Atypical eating disorders. Based on medical, psychological and nutritional evaluations, students will be provided with appropriate support that helps them move towards recovery. Our team follows evidence-based treatment guidelines and will make referrals for higher levels of care when necessary.
