Services across the country have seen a huge rise in cases of anorexia nervosa and other food restriction disorders during the pandemic. A number of factors are thought to have contributed to increased stress, a deterioration in young people’s mental health and an intense focus for some on eating and exercise during the pandemic. These factors include: isolation from peers during school closures, exam cancellations, loss of motivating extra-curricular activities such as sports, dance/drama/youth clubs; an increased use of social media with young people concentrating on unrealistic ideas of body image; being forced to quarantine (a particular problem for many students newly arrived at university); worries about families’ economic problems; illness or death of loved ones, and fears about contracting the virus.
BEAT eating disorders charity has a lot of useful information on their website.
