Group tackles 'thinner is better' thinking WAKEFIELD — Do you know someone who struggles with an eating disorder? Is it controlling your life? An eating disorders support group is here. Recently established at Community Mental Health, the group meets Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8 at the Community Menta! Health Building in Wakcfield. There is no charge for participation. Anorexia (self-starvation), bulimia (hinging and purging) and compulsive overeating affects some half-million people at any given time. Ninety-five percent of those are young women. There is growing evidence eating disorders are also a serious problem among males. Cultural and psychological issues, personality traits and learned behavior all contribute to eating disorders. American culture supports the adage "thinner is better." People with eating disorders believe this so deeply that their weight and dieting success become the measure of their self- worth. Thinking eating is the cause and result of many of their problems, they become trapped in a vicious cycle of repeated, ritualistic and rigid behavior focused on food. Participation in a support group is one weapon in an arsenal of therapies used to "fight" eating disorders. Working with individuals who understand food problems can help to increase a person's emotional strength to better deal with an eating disorder. CMH's Eating Disorders Support Group is facilitated by Leone Halberg, registered dietitian. Each Monday evening, a short presentation will be given on a topic related to eating disorders. Subsequent discussion and activities will expand on the week's topic.
