I agree with the above - could you provide more details on what you mean by "split personalities"? I would like to comment on saintjames' comment. DID, if that's what it is, is caused by some type of abuse, but it doesn't have to be physical. It doesn't even have to be what most people would consider "severe", it's what is severe to an individual's psyche, i.e., being teased (a form of put down) a lot could bounce off one person but be extremely damaging to someone who is naturally very sensitive. I don't know if you are talking about DID but, saintjames, I did want to expound a little on what you said.

Looking to get more details, but nothing you have said would seem to indicate a simple chemical imbalance that can be cured by meds. I hate to presume, but with the eating disorders, I wouldn't think the depression was caused by a chemical imbalance. Maybe your dad read something somewhere and is trying to find a "quick fix", but it doesn't sound like your wife's case fits that category, and it sounds like you already suspect a deeper problem.

More details? Otherwise, good luck in finding help.
