Up to half of those with an eating disorder also self-harm. However, we know little about why these mental health conditions often occur together.

Dr Helen Bould’s research team aims to enhance understanding about how difficulty managing emotions leads to the development of self-harm and eating disorders.

The research could help identify early signs of risk of self-harm or an eating disorder and potentially develop new treatments.
