TV PROGRAM: REPORTER IN IRELAND SEEKS PARTICIPANTS

I work as a reporter on an RTE documentary series called, Léargas in Ireland. I would like to make a programme on the increase in children/young adolescents who suffer from eating disorders. My aim would be to raise awareness of the issue, and the lack of support services for this specific problem. I am looking for people who may be affected directly by this or were affected and who would be willing to contribute to my programme, or indeed would welcome people with suggestions to email them to me or call me. I am of course looking for those who reside in the Republic of Ireland. The programme is in the irish language, but is subtitled in english. I would, therefore, hugely welcome irish speakers to contact me.

I look forward to your help.

You can call on my irish mobile 087-6955052
or email me: nieadhr@rte.ie

RESEARCH: GENETICS & FAMILIES with ANOREXIA

If there are 2 or more people in your family who have or have had anorexia, call 1-888-895-3886 (toll free) or visit www.angenetics.org.

A groundbreaking, five-year study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health is bringing together 11 groups of researchers from North America and Europe to study the genetics of Anorexia Nervosa.

The research group is seeking 400 families to participate in the research study. Your participation could help change our understanding of anorexia and lead to better treatment and prevention.

Existing studies have already pointed to a possible genetic basis for anorexia. Because this is such a complex disease, a large number of families will be needed to improve our understanding of the influence of genetics on anorexia.

The Board of Directors of the American Association of Suicidology (AAS) voted to move Suicide Prevention Week from May to September, beginning in 2004. This important decision was made in order to synchronize the week with World Suicide Prevention Day, now set as September 10 th, as petitioned by the International Association for Suicide Prevention, and accepted by The World Health Organization.

World Suicide Prevention Day is intended to promote and expand international awareness of the need to increase suicide prevention efforts, appropriate research, and effective interventions. AAS is pleased to be able to acknowledge and support this effort, while continuing to provide Suicide Prevention Week materials to organizations at no cost.

The decision to join IASP and WHO in observing and promoting World Suicide Prevention Day is a major step forward in collaborating with our sister organizations to present a united effort towards preventing suicide in all nations.
