Eating Disorders

At CAMH, research on eating disorders is focused on identifying effective evidence-based treatments.   

Research Activities 

Anorexia nervosa: A key area of focus for eating disorder researchers concerns anorexia nervosa, a complex disorder characterized by maladaptive eating behaviours as well as other psychological disturbances involving mood, obsessionality and body image.  Treatment for anorexia nervosa could include psychotherapy, medication or a combination of approaches; however, no single treatment to date stands out with robust empirical support. Thus, researchers at CAMH are working to uncover evidence-based treatment strategies to help those with this often unremitting and debilitating illness. 

Current Projects

Anorexia nervosa treatment studies: Current projects are focused on studying a novel non-medication treatment approach and using brain imaging to identify potential biological markers of the disorder. To find out more, please visit Find a CAMH Study (use keyword anorexia nervosa).
