Anorexia Nervosa: Beyond the Basics
Eating Disorders are one of the most commonly misunderstood, most complex, most underfunded mental illnesses/brain disorders in the mental health field today. In fact, Anorexia Nervosa in particular has the highest mortality rate of ANY other mental illness.
Beth Blubaugh, Executive Assistant at NAMI Ohio, has struggled with Anorexia Nervosa for over two decades. In an effort to promote awareness, education, and advocacy, NAMI Ohio has asked her to begin sharing her story with various groups throughout Ohio.
NAMI Ohio’s goal is to take the topic of eating disorders beyond the basics. Not only does Beth provide the audience with factual information and statistics, but also walks us through the painful details of her own personal journey with the illness.
