Eating Disorder Support Team

Eating disorders are complex and multifaceted issues that affect the mind, body, and daily functioning. Due to the complex nature of eating disorders, a team approach is best practice to target multiple areas of wellness. The Eating Disorder Support Team is a multidisciplinary team comprised of physicians, a dietitian, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and an athletic trainer who help students with eating and/or body image concerns. The team is designed to support students whose symptoms are currently stable but who need additional support to stay on track.  

A student may be discussed in the multidisciplinary team meetings in order to collaborate for care and identify most appropriate treatment recommendations. We will continue to assess a student’s progress and recovery and make updated recommendations based on student’s progress and level of functioning. Some students may need a higher level of care than the EDST is able to provide. When this occurs, EDST members will work with students to make referrals to other resources and treatment options. 


  • Treatment plans that are individualized and may include care coordination, counseling, psychiatry, medical care, and nutrition service
  • Determination of appropriate level of care based on the student's needs which may include seeking more intensive treatment off campus
  • Recommendations based on progress and level of functioning
  • Referrals and connections to community resources, as needed
  • Collaboration with other offices, as necessary, to promote academic success and progress

Get Connected

Begin by initiating care with Counseling and Psychological Services. It is also recommended that you see a physician (e.g., Campus Care or hometown provider) to determine your medical needs.

You may also be recommended to schedule a nutrition appointment with a dietitian at WellWorks.
