“What a fantastic service you offer to very concerned families. It is so appreciated.”
The EDV Hub is your first port of call when contacting Eating Disorders Victoria. The Hub is a free and confidential service providing information and peer support for people experiencing eating disorders or those who are supporting them (family, friends, professionals etc.). We offer a safe place for you to seek information, openly discuss your experience with eating disorders and ask any questions you may have.
The main roles of EDV Hub are:
- Information: we provide evidence based information to help people understand eating disorders. E.g. fact sheets, education about eating disorders.
- Navigation: by listening carefully and asking questions we are able to connect people with the services and support that they may need for their recovery, or to assist someone. E.g. treatment options, links with GP, psychologist/dietitian, specialist eating disorder services, support groups.
- Support: people come to EDV to help begin and maintain their recovery. We also provide support to families and friends. E.g. practicing telling someone, questions to ask.
The EDV Hub operates Monday – Friday 9.30am – 4.30pm. Contact made outside these hours will be followed up when the Hub is open.
