Reducing symptoms of depression
The BECK Depression Inventory (BDI-II) is a 21-question inventory that measures the overall severity of depression. At EDCare, we treat all mental illnesses that co-occur with the eating disorder. This integrative treatment approach is proven to be more effective than treating disorders separately.
Scores can range from 0 to 63 with higher scores indicating greater severity of depression. As illustrated, adults treated for both their eating disorder and depression experienced statistically significant reduction in depressive symptoms at the time of their discharge.
