Eating Disorders and Mental Health

Dr. Molly McShane, Psychiatrist and Medical Director for Monte Nido and Affiliates, explains eating disorders are brain diseases that need treatment from psychiatrists, because these disorders interact with our environment. They are turned on or off, or get worse or better, depending on the environment the patient is in.

She also encourages anyone with suicidal thoughts to go to the emergency room, because they can stay safe and be treated in the immediate acute setting.
