Admitting that something is wrong can be difficult, but it's an important step in seeking help for an eating disorder. At Eating Disorders Victoria (EDV), we understand and we're here to help. Our recovery guide will provide you with the information and resources you need to understand what you're going through, access treatment, and begin and maintain your recovery journey.
It can be difficult to watch someone you care about struggle with an eating disorder. It's important to remember that eating disorders are serious mental illnesses that require professional support and treatment. At Eating Disorders Victoria (EDV), we provide carers and loved ones with the resources and skills needed to understand eating disorders, navigate the treatment journey and support their loved one.
It's crucial that we all play a role in providing support to those affected by eating disorders. As a health worker, teacher, sporting coach, youth worker or community professional, it's important to have the knowledge and skills to provide appropriate prevention, early intervention and support in your community. Eating Disorders Victoria (EDV) provides resources and training to help you understand and respond to eating disorders.
The EDV Hub is a great first step for individuals in Victoria who are seeking information and support for eating disorders. Our knowledgeable volunteers are trained to provide personalised assistance, and will help guide you to the best support options available at EDV and beyond.
