Summary:
Anorexia, the most deadly of all mental illnesses, is on the increase among teenagers, both male and female. Three young people describe their battle with this often misunderstood eating disorder. With more under-16s being hospitalised from Anorexia than ever before, Lindsay, Rob and Constance have bravely agreed to talk openly about their battle with Anorexia, revealing what they feel led them to becoming anorexic, and how they managed to hide it from friends and family. Along with testimonies from their families, health services and schools, they also describe the long-road to recovery. The nature of the illness makes the sufferer deceitful and secretive, as they withdraw from their friends and family in order to hide the fact they are starving themselves. Although it is difficult spot, friends, teachers and parents can play a vital role in early intervention and helping anorexics to recover.
