Marqutte – An informational program on eating disorders, in recognition of May as Mental Health month, will be offered on Thursday, May 12 at 7 p.m. in the Shiras Room of the Peter White Public Library.
Presenter Mary Ritter, M.A., LPC, CAAC, therapist with Great Lakes Recovery Centers, will give an overview of these disorders which can occur when a person’s attitude about food, weight and body size lead to very rigid eating and exercise habits that jeopardize one’s health, happiness and safety.
There is no admission charge. This program is part of Your Mind Matters, an ongoing community dialog on mental health issues sponsored by a coalition of local community health organizations, advocacy groups, individuals and the Peter White Public Library.
