Fianna Fáil Senator for Mayo Lisa Chambers has welcomed the news of 9 new posts for the Eating disorder team in Galway and Roscommon.

Lisa Chambers stated ” there are currently not enough services in the West to facilitate people struggling with Eating disorders. Eating disorders have become very prevalent with the rise of social media and I have seen so many young adults, men and women struggle with body image and food issues”.

She continued ” I am hoping these new posts will strengthen the resources we have and people affected by eating disorders can get the help they need”.

The posts will initially cover Roscommon and Galway and the recruitment process is underway.
