Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate for any mental illness and therefore any discussion of them should be done sensitively.

You can't acuse them of craving sympathy or attention any more than you can acuse a cripple for limping.

You have absolutely no idea of what you're talking about.

I hope that no one you know ever suffers from a mental health problem, as with that attitude you will simply make it worse for them.

Though I have no love for the mental health services and how much money is wasted (the non-bold),

I thought this bold/underlined ranks amongst the most crass things I've ever read in here, and you have had a lot of competition in my time here.

Really?

More than depression?

Do you have a link to the journal?

Nothing to do with sympathy

Everything about controlling the only thing they can mate

Usually with a history of abuse

And that's part of the problem, which is too many people are walking on eggshells and are afraid of telling self abusers the truth.

Just wondering how blaming the victims of mental illness (in this case often a fatal one) helps anyone. Shocking comment.

Still trying to work out what sympathy someone who is dead is trying to get exactly because left untreated huge numbers of people with all sorts of mental health issues end up making that choice. And the number is at it's highest in recorded history.

The point is many of these mental issues are self inflicted, because the people affected have the luxury of living in the UK and are immune to the very real problems less fortunate people living in other areas of the World suffer. If a teenage UK anorexia sufferer traded places with a teenage Bangladesh sweatshop worker, then their anorexia issues would soon vanish.

Mental illnesses are no more self inflicted than viral or genetic illnesses.

Please stop, you're coming across like a ignorant tool.

You could become less ignorant, if you had a more open mind and looked at issues from another angle, while using more common sense in your thinking process.

Sure... I could be less ignorant. It's not you that's entirely ignorant of mental health issues.

Or perhaps their anorexia would become something else like cutting themselves or allowing themselves to be sexually abused. As has been pointed out anorexia isn't about food, it's about control. It's logical that Africa won't have much anorexia as they don't have food to begin with so there's no added control that can be gained. However, if you look a little wider, you will see that obesity is a growing issue in richer African nations which is being seen as 'African anorexia', i.e. they aren't getting fat because they have a bad diet or don't exercise, they are getting fat because they have a mental condition that makes them crave food permanently. So send that anorexia sufferer to Africa and they'd quite likely develop the exact opposite condition and you'd still not have cured them of the underlying issue.

So perhaps we need to look at girls in particular suffer from eating disorders more than boys - lack of control given to girls? I don't know.
And also why do so many men commit suicide compared to women?
