Family-Based Therapy for Anorexia Nervosa in Adolescents
Patient Care

FBT helps children recover from anorexia nervosa successfully

Mayo's family-based therapy (FBT) program seeks to avoid hospitalization and instead actively engages parents in the process of restoring their child to a healthy weight at home. More than 80 percent of treated patients make a full recovery.

Collaborative model integrates mental health professionals into primary care

Many trials have demonstrated that collaborative care for depression is more effective than usual care in various settings. Mayo specialists also are working to develop collaborative care programs for patients with anxiety disorders and other mental health issues.

ADHD may affect 4 to 5 percent of US adults

ADHD symptoms in adults include attention issues, such as difficulty with planning, follow-through, organization and time management. Treatment plans should identify patients' strengths and weaknesses, assess for residual symptoms, and employ psychosocial interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy.
