"Treatment for Eating Disorder"
Posted by junezx44 (as ),
My child has been sick and hospitalised several times in 3 years.
I am grateful there is a Eating Disorder Program at Perth Children's Hospital. PCH is sometimes reluctant to accept 16+ patients.
I understand that Anorexia Nervosa is one of the mental illnesses more difficult to treat and also the one with more mortality.
I am a parent that cares, we are a family that cares and want their child recovered and blooming as part of a productive society.
I am not looking for someone or an institution to take care of my child. I am looking for a collaborative treatment to heal my child.
We live north of the river, our local hospital is Joondalup. I called to ask for the eating disorder treatment doctor in charge and nobody knows about it.
I looked online for eating disorder services and there are none.
When my child stops eating they are in denial that they are ok to live without eating.
What do we do to keep our child alive when they are asking to leave them to die?I feel frustrated.
