The Ohio State University has many resources available to students struggling with eating disorders and co-occurring mental health concerns.

The Eating Disorder Treatment Team is a collaborative effort among the Student Health Services, Student Wellness Center, and Counseling and Consultation Service to meet the growing need for eating disorder services on campus. This team of registered dietitians, counselors, and medical and mental health professionals provides outpatient care and referrals for those who need a higher level of care. You can call the Counseling and Consultation Service at 614-292-5766 to set up your first session today.
