In all colleges: There are counseling offices. Call them and ask for a psychologist or psychiatrist who specializes in eating disorders and start getting help. They will know what you need to do and may have groups as well as individual counseling to offer you.

Professional help: Please seek professional help from a psychologist who specializes in food eating disorders. You might also want the help of a nutrition specialist in food eating disorders as well. Also seeking out support from those who have succeeded in overcoming their food eating disorder is important. Good luck and all the best to you.

Why Mention: Your history of mental illness is a private matter and should have no bearing on your admission to any educational institute. You may want to enquire about what services might be available for your mental illness, again no need to disclose your condition. Prejudice towards mental illness does exist and we must learn to cope with it. Unfortunately hiding it is often our only course of action.
