Our Approach to Nutrition

The team of dietitians at Campus Health practices a Health at Every Size® approach to nutrition care. This concept means that we appreciate diversity in body shapes/sizes and recognize that health is not measured by the number on the scale. Clients are encouraged to nourish the body with foods that support physical and mental health and reduce the emphasis on specific weight or aesthetic goals.

Eating Disorder FAQs

What kind of services are provided for eating disorders/disordered eating?  

We understand and recognize the need for support for disordered eating/eating disorders.  Campus Health has primary care providers to help manage your medical concerns and registered dietitians who can provide nutrition counseling.  

How does eating disorder treatment work?  

Campus Health works collaboratively with the Counseling Center and community providers for a multidisciplinary approach.  At Campus Health, medical providers and registered dietitians provide evaluations and assessments, individualized treatment recommendations and referrals to the community, as appropriate.  If you are not established with a mental health provider, we can help connect you to our in-house Behavioral Health Consultant or the Counseling Center for an intake appointment.  Components of care may include medical evaluations and laboratory tests, nutrition counseling, medication management, brief therapy and/or community referrals for more long-term support. 

Can Campus Health complete weight checks?

Campus Health is able to provide weight checks for students who may be working with a community therapist or dietitian on a regular basis for eating disorder treatment.  To collaborate with community providers, a Release of Information must be completed.  

Are there any limitations to services provided for eating disorders? 

There may be situations when a student’s needs require more intensive services than Campus Health can provide.  In those circumstances, your Campus Health provider(s), along with your mental health care provider, will review concerns, provide and/or review treatment recommendations and help you coordinate the most appropriate level of care to support your recovery.
