Episode 58: Zach Rawlings: Gay Men and Eating Disorders

Today, Kathy is joined by Zach Rawlings, and their topic is gay men and eating disorders. They discuss why there is a higher prevalence of eating disorders among gay men versus straight men, how parents and loved ones can address concerns, and what an individual struggling with an eating disorder can do.

Zach Rawlings is a licensed professional counselor who works on the admissions team at Eating Recovery Center. He currently resides in New York City where he’s completing his doctorate in Clinical Psychology.

Prior to coming on board at ERC, he ran a private practice working with gay men, trauma, and eating disorders. He also serves as a Clinical Consultant and Advisory Board Member to Children’s Future International, a nonprofit the rescues, educates and rehabilitates some of the most resource-poor children in the Cambodian village of Battambang.

His research interests include eating pathology, body image, and the mental health disparity between gay and straight men. His writing has been featured on The Huffington Post and Vice.

Eating Recovery Center also has a podcast, entitled Mental Note, that highlights both the work and the beauty of mental health recovery.
