“With 1 death every 52 minutes occurring in the U.S. as a direct result of an eating disorder, eating disorders have the second highest mortality rate of any mental illness. With early intervention, full recovery is possible. With treatment, the mortality rate of people with serious eating disorders falls from 20% to 2-3%.”
