People with eating disorders may be at an increased risk of more severe forms of the illness. Get the latest information from health professionals as well as information for alternative support options during this time.
COVID-19 has changed the way EDV work, but not the work we do! We will continue to provide our core services such as our Hub, telehealth nurse and psychology clinic during this time. Find out about other changes to our workshops and events here.
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.

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
There is no magic word, prescription or motivational speech that will force recovery upon you. Only you can make that choice. That choice will dissipate the loneliness and isolation that your eating disorder compels you to feel.Read Amy'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
