‘Eating disorders and computer games’

Maria Mercedes Guala from Psykiatrien, Psychiatric Department in Odense

The project seeks to help patients with eating disorders. The patients are to participate in developing a game in the form of an app, where they get the chance to play through realistic everyday situations and lines of action concerning their eating disorder. 
75.000 people in Denmark suffer from eating disorders, and many of them are very young and suffer from other mental health problems as well. Most of them would like to get rid of the symptoms but have trouble letting go so they can live a normal life.
