A phone call to EDV changed Imogen's life

“I said ‘I think I have an eating disorder’ and the person — I still to this day don’t know who it was and wish I could thank them — she was just so good with me. I was terrified making that phone call and she believed me and validated how I was feeling. I didn’t feel by myself any more.

“She was the first person I’d ever spoken to about eating disorders, ever … and she made me feel like it was actually going to be ok.”

Your impact

By donating to EDV, you are helping people with an eating disorder and their families to access:

  • A free and confidential telephone, email and drop-in support service where people can get information, support and up-to-date listings of professionals with experience in treating eating disorders.
  • Private psychology and dietitian sessions for people experiencing eating disorders and related issues, as well as for the family and friends who are supporting a loved one.
  • Monthly support group meetings for those in recovery and for family and friends in locations across Melbourne.
  • Workshops, presentations and courses aimed at the early intervention and support of people with eating disorders for professionals, workplaces, schools and the community.
  • Group programs specifically designed for carers, people in recovery and people who are at risk of an eating disorder.
  • Peer support program matching people transitioning from hospital treatment with a mentor who has fully recovered from an eating disorder.

Thank you. We couldn’t do what we do without your support.
