EDV welcomes the increased commitment announced in the Federal Budget to fund mental health treatment services and research.

We congratulate the Australian government, and Minister Greg Hunt, for demonstrating the political will to begin the task of strengthening the mental health system, and for specifically including eating disorders.

EDV has supported the advocacy efforts of a number of organisations, including The Butterfly Foundation, Mental Health Australia and SANE. It’s great to see that when we work together we can achieve good outcomes. Providing a range of flexible options for people with eating disorders to be supported to recover at any stage of their illness is an important principle for which we will continue to advocate as the basis of further investment in mental health services.
