We've had a busy few weeks in the EDV office as we celebrated Mental Health Week with our Stories of Recovery event on Thursday 12 October. It was a great night with five inspiring and very motivating speakers talking about their own recovery from an eating disorder in front of a theater full of people.

Some other big news is that over the last few months EDV has been in discussions with the Body Project Collaborative in America and we have partnered with them to roll-out Body Project Australia (BPA) training throughout Victoria and then eventually Australia-wide. The opportunities BPA will provide for EDV are enormous and we look forward to training as many youth-based organisations in Victoria. See below for more information and how to take part in BPA training.

EDV has further strengthened our relationship with The Melbourne Clinic's eating disorder program. We have discussed a number of opportunities of how both organisations can work with each other to support people with eating disorders. EDV is now taking part in The Melbourne Clinic's Collaborative Carers Skills Workshop (CCSW) which is a 6 week workshop supporting carers of a loved one with an eating disorder.

Over the next few weeks I will be keeping Jennifer's seat warm as she embarks on her six week Churchill Fellowship trip.
