Royal Commission into Victoria's Mental Health System

EDV encourage anyone who has experienced the eating disorder treatment system in Victoria to speak up during the the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System.

We understand that sharing your experience with the eating disorder service system may feel overwhelming, for many reasons. Putting together the words to describe what will often be a long, complicated and deeply personal story is understandably challenging.

If you would like speak to someone about sharing your experience with the eating disorder service system, please contact us on 1300 550 236, or email us at edv@eatingdisorders.org.au

Make your own submission to the Commission

There are two ways to make a submission to the Commission:

  1. Provide a formal submission by uploading or sending a written, audio or video submission (including any supporting documents) in response to 11 key questions relating to the Commission’s terms of reference. You can choose to respond to some or all of the questions. Formal submissions are open until July 5th.
  2. Share brief comments in response to six key questions relating to the Commission’s terms of reference. These questions address issues of stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness; early treatment, prevention and support; suicide prevention; barriers to good mental health; and your priorities for change. You can choose to respond to some or all of the questions. Brief comments are open until May 20th.
