This free service is available to people in Victoria experiencing eating disorders and their support people. The nurse acts as a central point of contact to help people access services, locate specialised eating disorder health professionals, provide information and help people work towards recovery.
Registrations are now open for a range of professional and community workshops in 2020. EDV workshops are suitable for a range of professionals, including teachers, youth workers, personal trainers, yoga instructors, maternal child health nurses and other allied health professionals.
"Despite being told that I would never graduate high school, especially not with my original peer group, I did. Despite being told I may never recover fully, I did. Despite being told I might never handle the stress of my dream job - being a nurse - I now am a registered nurse working at a major public hospital and I am."Read Tess's story

"More than ten years on, my recovery hasn’t been fast, but it has been big. I still struggle to love my body sometimes. But I have learned that my body deserves to be cared for, regardless of how I feel about it in the moment."Cheryl's story
