Students suffering from eating disorders find lack of campus resources

A Stanford student suffering from an eating disorder went to CAPS at the beginning of fall quarter, seeking treatment. After waiting several weeks, she received confirmation to begin attending weekly therapy sessions. At the start of each appointment, she was weighed in wearing a hospital gown and told to urinate in a cup for tests. After passing these checkpoints, she spent the rest of the appointment talking to a therapist assigned to her through CAPS.
