Services users needed for research

Have you or your loved one received support for an eating disorder from a public mental health service?

Would you like a chance to have your say on how these services should look in the future?

If so, we would love to hear from you!

Getting the help you or your loved one needs for an eating disorder can be a complicated process. Services that provide assessment and treatment for people experiencing eating disorders are structured differently across Victoria, so what support you get really depends on where you live.

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.
