Summary A longitudinal study indicated that carers experienced long-term moderate levels of psychological distress and burden. High levels of negative expressed emotion, use of maladaptive coping strategies and unmet needs predicted burden longitudinally. Further, eating disorder sufferers underestimate the burden experienced by carers. The results support the use of carer-based intervention.
