Eating Disorders session @ GCHSS Youth Hub

On 11th April 2018, the GCHSS Youth Hub hosted Ms. Darleen Zerafa and Dr. Joan Camilleri from Dar Kenn ghal Saħħtek, which is a centre for the treatment of eating disorders and obesity.

Eating Disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia were mentioned and explained to the young people who attended. The session focused on why certain young people end up suffering from these disorders, the main causes being family problems and bullying. Obesity, which leads to a myriad of other health conditions and diseases such as Diabetes and High Blood Pressure was also discussed.

Dr. Joan Camilleri stressed the importance of being nice to one another and to support those who are facing such problems. Ms. Darleen Zerafa then explained the services offered by Dar Kenn ghal Saħħtek which range from both a residential programme and also Outpatients.
