The Victorian Centre of Excellence in Eating Disorders (CEED) is the state-wide program in the Victorian Government’s commitment to the provision of quality services to those with eating disorders and their families.
CEED was established in 2002 as part of the Victorian government’s commitment to addressing and improving the quality of services available to people with eating disorders. CEED provides leadership and support through clinical consultation, training, resource and service development, to build quality and sustainable eating disorder treatment responses within the public specialist mental health service. We have also developed a range of early intervention strategies including interactive online resources.
CEED is a state-wide program of Victoria’s specialist public mental health services managed by North Western Mental Health. CEED is comprised of senior clinicians with extensive clinical experience in the eating disorders field.
CEED promotes excellence in eating disorders treatment through a focus on the following principles
- Care should be based on current evidence
- Service design and workforce development should be recovery oriented
- Families and Carers are central members of any team
- A planned care team approach
