Speakers Bank is made up of people who have recovered from an eating disorder or who have cared for someone who has recovered and who are willing to share their story with others. The aim of Speakers Bank is to educate and raise awareness of eating disorders and to offer hope and inspiration that recovery is possible for everyone.
Role of the Speaker
There is increasing recognition that the 'lived experience' is valuable both as a source of support for people still suffering and as a tool to increase awareness and improve education around the prevention and early intervention of eating disorders.
Speakers tell their stories, answer questions and express opinions from their particular perspective. There are a variety of settings in which people can share their experience including:
- Hospital Visiting Program – inpatient, day patient & out patient
- Media Enquiries
- Community Awareness Events
- Education Workshops
- Professional Development Sessions
We are not currently taking applications for speakers to be on our Speakers Bank.
