Review of Ireland’s First Year of the COVID-19 Pandemic Impact on People Affected by Eating Disorders: ‘Behind Every Screen There Was a Family Supporting a Person with an Eating Disorder’ 

Earlier this year, Bodywhys was asked to work on a research paper about eating disorders. The study was recent published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine.

In this paper, we describe the impact of COVID-19 on people affected by eating disorders in Ireland, along with families.
