COVID-19 and Eating Disorders – Information for Health Practitioners
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many of us having to re-think the way we work. Like us, you might be wondering about whether your clients with eating disorders are at increased risk of COVID-19, or how this pandemic will alter the way you provide treatment to clients with eating disorders in the near future. In conjunction with leaders around Victoria and Australia, CEED has developed some resources which might answer some of these questions:
CEED’s Services during the COVID-19 Shut Down
We’re still here to support mental health clinicians and services!
COVID-19 has changed some of the ways CEED connects, but not the work we do!
We will continue to provide our core services during this time:
- clinical consultation,
- group case consultation
- training (stay tuned for updates as we move to providing more online training)
- service development support
- and access clinical resources.
We want to assure you that CEED has increased our capacity to provide clinical consultation (via phone/ video conferencing) to help you problem solve how you can continue provide quality and evidenced based treatment to your clients with eating disorders.
Our team has extensive experience in eating disorders, and we are here to help you navigate this rapidly changing context with which we currently find ourselves. To request consultation go to our online form: https://ceed.org.au/request-consultation or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
