Support organisations

young women green background

Seeking professional support will reduce the amount of stress you carry and improve your capacity to care for someone with an eating disorder.

Support can come from:

  • Your family doctor or GP
  • Another medical or mental health specialist
  • A community-based organisation or centre
  • A state or national organisation

Community-based organisations and respite centres are equipped with trained professionals who often possess a substantial amount of knowledge about eating disorders and about how to care for someone with an eating disorder.

All of these organisations and professionals can:

  • Assist you with skills-based support about how to recognise eating disorder signs, and confront and manage someone with eating disorder
  • Provide support and advice about your own physical and psychological wellbeing, as well as the wellbeing of the person you are caring for
  • Help you find employment; this can be beneficial for carers who need to change their working conditions in order to care for someone with an eating disorder
  • Provide information booklets and brochures to help you stay informed
  • Direct you to peer support groups and networks or other professionals, for further help and assistance
