People with eating and body concerns sometimes also experience very high levels of distress or hopelessness. These may lead to thoughts about committing suicide or to self-harm behaviours. Take a moment to think about your levels of distress.
Have you been struggling to cope with intense feelings of distress?
Have you felt hopeless, like things will never get better?
Have you thought about, or wanted to commit suicide (i.e., wanting to end your life)?
Have you thought about, or engaged in self-harm behaviours (i.e., deliberately hurt yourself)?
If you answered yes to any of these questions or have concerns for your safety, seek immediate help.
