This one-day conference was organised by the Association of Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH). It featured an outstanding line-up of speakers who are world-renowned practitioners, clinicians and researchers in the area of eating disorders in young people.
The talks and discussion focused on: translating basic neuroscience into clinical practice in anorexia nervosa, treatment for anorexia nervosa and for avoidant and restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), and the role of the voluntary sector in the treatment and prevention of eating disorders.
We live tweeted and podcasted this event, which had a big impact on the conversation. We were especially pleased with the way in which we succeeded in bringing service users, carers and the international research community into the discussion.
The ACAMH team were delighted with the #BeyondTheRoom service and immediately commissioned us to cover another of their international conferences later in the year.
