The 2015 International Mental Health Congress will be held in Lille, France. This year’s topic will be “Mental Health for All: Connecting People and Sharing Experience” Rebecca will be talking about Eating Disorders as complex mental health conditions that involve genetics, environmental factors, psychological disturbances, neurochemical and biochemical changes, and disturbed thinking patterns.  She states,  “Treating eating disorders requires an accurate diagnosis with the right assessment tools, medical and psychiatric stabilization, nutritional accountability, cognitive restructuring, the instillation of hope, self-love and a connection to Self and the appetite. Neurochemical and genetic expression can be altered and are implicated in disordered eating, food addictions and eating disorders.” This new information will change how eating disorders are understood, prevented and treated.
