Eating disorders are a serious mental illness - not a lifestyle choice, a diet gone wrong or a fad. Eating Disorders Victoria ('EDV') aims to change the stigma associated with the condition and disseminate a message of hope.

Recovery is possible.

EDV offers a range of services:

Helpline: A free and confidential service providing information or support about eating disorders and related issues. Call 1300 550 236 weekdays between 9.30am and 5pm to speak with an EDV volunteer.

Support Groups: EDV groups allow people to discuss and share their experiences, emotions and challenges, and to develop positive strategies in a safe and supportive setting.

Private psychology sessions for people experiencing eating disorders and related issues, as well as for family and friends who are supporting a loved one.

Education: Workshops aimed at the prevention, early intervention and support of people suffering from an eating disorder.

Events: We invite you to visit our website to find an event of interest.
