Letters: Helping to tackle eating disorders

I am writing in relation to the article on overeating which appeared in the Herald (February 1).

I am writing in relation to the article on overeating which appeared in the Herald (February 1).

It discussed compulsive overeating in a positive and informative manner. Binge eating is one of the lesser-known eating disorders and it's good to see an article that raises awareness of it.

The inclusion of contact details for Overeaters Anonymous encourages those in distress to seek help. Articles like this promote discussion and help destigmatise mental health issues.
