Eating disorders are difficult to recognize because they mimic many other physical and psychiatric conditions, especially in the early stages. At the same time, earlier recognition is associated with better chances for recovery. They have the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric condition. Anyone who works with children or teens with eating disorders can contribute to their recovery. The peak onset of eating disorders is during adolescence and although they have typically been seen as affecting primarily girls, they appear to be increasing among children and boys.
