  • Family-based program. Mayo Clinic provides a family-based therapy program for children and teenagers with eating disorders. Parents and family members become an important part of the treatment team and learn ways to help the child recover.
  • Care tailored to your needs. A psychologist serves as your individual care consultant throughout the entire program, personalizing treatment based on your needs.
  • Team approach. Your team may include psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, registered dietitians and other medical professionals as needed who will coordinate your treatment. People with eating disorders that are complicated by complex medical conditions especially can benefit from Mayo Clinic's coordinated, team approach to care.
  • Experience and expertise. Skilled experts at Mayo Clinic treat more than 600 people with eating disorders each year.
  • Successful outcomes. In general, children and teenagers treated with family-based therapy for anorexia and bulimia have higher recovery rates than those treated with other approaches.
