    • Abstract:
      This study assessed binge eating behavior and binge eating disorder in ninety overweight women with severe psychiatric disability from twelve clubhouses in eastern Massachusetts. Interviews were conducted using four surveys to assess binge eating behavior, self-esteem, emotional eating, and other relevant demographic, clinical, and psychiatric variables. Self-reported level of importance of eating patterns and behavior in the respondents' psychiatric treatment, rehabilitation, and recovery, together with their self-reported perception of their treatment and rehabilitation providers view of that importance also were assessed.Respondents were grouped according to binge eating behavior. Twenty-eight (31.1%) met criteria for binge eating disorder (BED), twenty-five (27.8%) met criteria for some type of binge eating behavior (BEB), and thirty-seven (41.1%) did not binge eat (NBE). Most of the women (79%) were Caucasian. Mean age was 41.9 years; mean BMI was 35 kg/m2>. BMI was significantly higher in the BED groups. Average duration of psychiatric disability was 22 years, 72% were unemployed, and 78% had a high school degree or higher. Most (93%) agreed that their eating behavior patterns were important in their treatment and in their recovery from psychiatric disability, yet over half (57%) reported that both their treatment and their rehabilitation providers neglected their eating patterns to some degree.The frequency of binge eating disorder (31%) was equal to the frequency found in overweight women without a psychiatric disability who have been in weight loss programs, a group who typically have the highest frequency of BED of those yet studied. Self-esteem was significantly lower in women with BED, and the frequency of eating in response to negative emotion was significantly higher for the women in the BED and the BEB groups. Dieting history, length of psychiatric treatment, type of psychiatric medication or diagnosis, and the number of other co-occurring medical conditions were not significantly different between groups.Binge eating disorder and binge eating behavior have serious psychiatric and physical effects, yet 59% of the respondents had undetected binge eating disorders or binge eating behavior. Attention to eating patterns and behavior in women with severe psychiatric disabilities by mental health service providers and researchers is strongly recommended.
