I'm concerned about someone else

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.

I'm a concerned professional

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.
