This is a really important forum for people who have somehow been touched by an eating disorder to attend. We’re not scary! and it’s a wonderful opportunity to ask sufferers and health care professionals questions about an issue which affects vast amounts of Australians (and Canberrans). There is not enough funding put towards Eating Disorder treatment, education, prevention and research and recommendations will be made to the government in the hopes of modifying existing treatment methods and programs.

Please feel free to forward the information onto anyone you feel will be interested.

What’s Your opinion?

I’m not entirely sure how you see that comment as helpful or appropriate.

It will be three sufferers sharing their story – one recovered from anorexia nervosa, another recovering from eating disorder not otherwise specified and another recovering from bulimia nervosa. There will be a talk by a mental health professional and quesiton and answer time. It’s people like you that we want to turn up. It is ignorance like yours that makes me realize what a difficult job we have ahead of us.
