Input needed from public mental health clinicians who have worked with eating disorders

We want to better understand mental health clinicians perspective of service delivery for people with eating disorders in Victoria. Researchers from Deakin University want to speak to Victorian public mental health clinicians who have worked with people experiencing eating disorders. You may have a lot, or a little, experience in this area, but your views are still valuable.
By participating in this study, you will be contributing to the transformation of mental health service delivery in Victoria. We hope that, in future, clinicians can work is system where they have the resources, confidence and skills they need to delivery high quality care to people with eating disorders.  If you are interested in talking to us about your experience of the current service system and providing services for people with eating disorders, please contact Genevieve Pepin (email: genevieve.pepin@deakin.edu.au or ph: 52278462).e.

We want to better understand your experience of service delivery in Victoria. What services were available to you? What parts of the service worked well? What areas could be improved?

We are hoping to speak to people who have formerly received assessment, treatment and/or support from a public service in Victoria and people who have cared for a loved one experiencing an eating disorder. We will use this information to develop a new integrated approach to eating disorder service delivery. We hope that in future, everyone has equal access to the high quality care they need, when they need it.

This Deakin University research project is being conducted by Associate Professor Genevieve Pepin and Rachel King.

If you are interested in talking to us about your experience of service delivery for eating disorders in Victoria, please contact Genevieve Pepin for more information.
