CAMHS Eating Disorder Service

We are a Multi-professional team of Eating Disorder Specialists- Nurses/ Social Worker, a Family Therapist, Dietitian and Medic who have specialist training and experience in the treatment of Eating Disorders.

The team is based in The Sperrins, Ceardarwood Building Longstone Site, Armagh, providing a Monday-Friday 9am-5pm service, for 10-18 year olds living in the Southern Trust Area.

The Team specialises in the comprehensive assessment and treatment of young people who present on referral with:

  • Anorexia Nervosa
  • Bulimia nervosa
  • Eating Disorders not otherwise specified/Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorders
  • General Practitioner/Family Doctor
  • Paediatricians (hospital and community)
  • Medical Physicians
  • A&E Consultants
  • Generic Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service Professionals

Referrals should be made by completing the Child and Adolescent Eating Disorder referral Performa

(This can be accessed by emailing and then forwarded to Referral Co-ordinators at

Self-referrals are not accepted.



When a young person is referred to the Child and Adolescent Eating Disorder Service we offer a family and individual assessment and a full Dietetic assessment. If after these assessments, we believe that the Eating Disorder Service is appropriate to meet the young person’s needs, we will offer a follow up appointment and treatment plan.  We will liaise with the young person’s GP/Referral agent throughout treatment.

The team believe that recovering from an eating disorder involves enabling a young person to be able to eat enough to grow and develop normally by finding a way of addressing his or her emotional needs through a medium other than food and eating. Successful intervention involves working towards some understanding not just recognition of the problem.

Following assessment we offer a range of interventions which include:

  • Reviews
  • Motivational work
  • Individual Therapy
  • Family Therapy & Multi Family Therapy
  • Individual Nutritional Assessment Education and Reviews, Management of refeeding process
  • Nutritional Educational groups
  • Carers Support Education Group

The Team also provide

  • Consultation Service to Trust Professionals
  • Training
