I'm concerned I may have an eating disorder, where can I go to get help?

Our multidisciplinary Eating Disorder Treatment Team is made up of representatives from Primary Care, Psychiatry, Women’s Health, Nutrition, and the GT Counseling Center. We identify students with symptoms of an eating disorder, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia, binge eating, and other disordered eating patterns, and create individualized treatment plans. The treatment plan typically consists of nutrition assessments, as well as medical and psychiatric evaluations and treatment. To address your concerns, email nutrition@gatech.edu to make an appointment with a dietitian.
