• Did You Know Half Of All Australian's Will Deal With Mental Illness

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Today is World Mental Health Day and the scary statistic is that 50% of Australian's will deal with mental illness at some stage in their lives.

One of the four major mental illnesses that people suffer from is Eating Disorders, and we spoke to Mel Marks from the Eating Disorders Association about how the internet and social norms of associating beauty with being thin is affecting young people.

With half of all Australian's having to deal with mental illness at some point in their lives the odds were against us as a team, and Robin bravely shared how her sister's battle with anorexia affected her family and her childhood. 

For more information on Eating Disorders you can visit the Eating Disorder Associations website.
