Eating Disorders

Eating disorders can affect you medically, psychologically and academically. If you need help, come see us for a confidential assessment and referral services.

Care for eating disorders requires a multidisciplinary approach, and the Twin Cities is lucky to have facilities with outstanding care.  Boynton Health partners with these specialized programs to make sure students get the care they need.

Without treatment, eating disorders can lead to serious health complications and negatively impact school, work, and relationships. A complex condition, eating disorders affect people of any age and any gender. Boynton Health is committed to the mental health of the University of Minnesota student population. With a generous donation from the Edelstein Family Foundation, Boynton Health can extend our commitment through the help of Melrose Center.

Boynton Health, in partnership with the Melrose Center, provides compassionate, expert care for all types of eating disorders for the Twin-Cities campus. Boynton Health has helped guide hundreds  of students toward accessing recovery services using evidence-based treatment programs. And with the increased financial support Boynton hopes more students will be positively impacted.

If you or a U of M student you know have active eating disorder concerns, call 612-624-1444 for a confidential assessment and referral.
