SUGAR COATED: THE TRUTH ABOUT EATING DISORDERS cover image
I really like the documentary Sugar Coated: The Truth About Eating Disorders because it speaks about how people's mental health has been affected during the pandemic. It talks about eating disorders and how social media affects the way people view themselves, especially teens.

This is a documentary about the correlation between social media, mental health and eating disorders.

I really liked seeing the interviews with experts who address the relationship between the pandemic and mental health, in particular and how it contributed to eating disorders. The camera work is quite good; I especially enjoyed the close-ups of the interviews. The speakers are very honest about their experiences and the experts give background information about the causes of eating disorders. My favorite part is how, throughout the documentary, we get information about this disease as well as where to go to get help.

The film's message is that eating disorders are related to mental health and that recovery from it is possible.

I give Sugar Coated: The Truth About Eating Disorders 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. So many teens suffer from eating disorders and this documentary helps understand the causes of it, plus how to deal with it. By Elizabeth V., KIDS FIRST!

Sugar Coated is a collaborative youth-produced social justice documentary film created by high school students across New York City participating in EVC's flagship program. Eating disorders are a mental health issue and have the second highest mortality rate of any psychiatric diagnosis, outranked only by opioid disorders. Why hasn't this been said publicly? How does mental health correlate with eating disorders? How can you cope with mental health issues during a pandemic? How has living through the pandemic increased mental health and eating disorders? 97 percent of individuals hospitalized for an eating disorder were also diagnosed with a mood disorder. Many people in New York City are not concerned about living a healthier lifestyle. In this documentary, we will present how mental health correlates with eating disorders.
