Families caring from someone with an eating disorder need skills. The emergence of an eating disorder within a family is an experience families and carers often find overwhelming and unprepared for. EDFA knows that there are capabilities that equip families to engage with the treatment and recovery process with confidence and effectiveness.

EDFA will investigate and identify the capabilities that equip families and carers to confidently and effectively engage with the treatment and recovery process. EDFA will facilitate families and carers to:

  • Recognise eating disorder symptoms and access treatment as early as practicable
  • Access programs and support systems to develop effective capabilities
