We understand the many challenges faced by our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to COVID-19, Eating Disorders Victoria has implemented a new Wellbeing Program to assist people living with eating disorders and their support people during this challenging time.
An eating disorder is a serious mental illness, characterised by eating, exercise and body weight or shape becoming an unhealthy preoccupation of someone’s life. Eating disorders are not a lifestyle choice, a diet gone wrong or a cry for attention.
Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder, with almost half of all people diagnosed with an eating disorder experiencing BED. Despite being so prevalent, many people don't know the signs to look out for, or when it's time to seek professional help.
