Eating Disorders Treating Males

  • Belmont is the only psychiatric facility in Philadelphia to treat males with eating disorders. 

    Approximately 8 percent of Belmont’s eating disorder patients are male. Boys and men with eating disorders face different challenges than female patients. Those include:

    • Different body issues to overcome
    • Different factors leading up to the eating disorder, such as participation in weight-focused sports like wrestling
    • Fewer resources on males with eating disorders
    • Less understanding from family members who are not knowledgeable about male eating disorders

    All eating disorder patients at Belmont receive the same nutritional and mental health care.
