ABOUT THE TALK:
In this talk, you’ll find out what eating disorders are and common myths about them. We'll also discuss evidence-based treatments and provide guidance on what you can do if you, or someone you know, is struggling with eating problems. The main presentation will be delivered by Rebecca Murphy, followed by a Q&A with Robin Murphy and Deborah Waller.
ABOUT THE SERIES:
We have come to realise the importance of mental health issues and the impact they can have on individuals as well as on society at large. But, can you separate the facts from the myths? Do you know how to promote your own mental wellness and help those around you?
At Oxford, we have some of the world’s leading researchers helping us understand the causes of mental conditions and develop effective evidence-based treatments. We are bringing them together in a new series to share their knowledge and answer your questions about how we can look after each others’ mental wellness in our community.
