If you are an adult living in Victoria with an eating disorder or you are a parent/family member/friend who is caring for either a child or adult who has an eating disorder, you are able to connect and receive this service. No referral is required. If you, or someone you know, would like additional support from a mental health counsellor, please get in touch.
If you are under 16 years of age: We are very happy to receive phone calls and enquiries from people under the age of 16. However, we do require that you have an adult (someone over the age of 18) join you for your phone calls. This can be a family member, friend, clinician, school teacher/mental health worker, youth worker or a support person of your choosing. We do this to ensure that all conversations are clear and transparent and that you have someone to support you with both information and plans.
For callers under the age of 18: If the EDV worker you are speaking to is seriously worried about your safety or the safety of someone else they must, by law, try to keep everyone safe. This means they might have to share their concerns with someone else. Please talk to us about confidentiality to ensure you understand how this works.
