Eating Disorder Treatment: Madi's Recovery from Bulimia

Madi O'Dell was treated successfully in Children's Hospital Colorado's Eating Disorders Unit (EDU) for bulimia, an eating disorder, which began her freshman year in high school.

In this series of videos, Madi candidly shares her teen perspective about her experience. She's also joined by her mom, Sue O'Dell, and high school counselor and coach, Mike Deutsch, who provide tips for adults who suspect a kid they know may be struggling with an eating disorder.

Together, Madi, Sue and Mike hope to educate and inspire others about the dangers of eating disorders and the facts and resources available for those who seek treatment.
