This chapter was prepared by The Butterfly Foundation for Eating Disorders, drawing on the resources developed by the National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC). The NEDC is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health. The NEDC is a collaboration of people and organisations with expertise in the field of eating disorders, whose primary purpose is to develop a nationally consistent, evidence-based approach to the prevention and management of eating disorders across Australia.

This chapter will provide an overview of anorexia nervosa in adolescents, how to recognise it, and what to do for support. Anorexia nervosa is associated with a range of serious physical and emotional consequences, hence early intervention is critical in order to reach full recovery.
