Home ~ EDV Mental Health Clinic

After 10 years of providing private mental health services at EDV, the decision has been made to close this service. The landscape of private eating disorder treatment has expanded significantly since the opening of the clinic, providing the community with a greater variety of private treatment options. As such, we will be closing this chapter of our organisation in September 2023, and focusing our energy on our range of free support services. If you wish to engage with private psychological support, please contact the EDV Hub for referral options.
