Australia and New Zealand

Australia NZBelow I have compiled a list of organisations, websites, and services that support those recovering from disordered eating and/or their families and friends. However, I recommend you access the National Eating Disorder Collaboration (NEDC), which provides a comprehensive directory of eating disorder treatment services and supports available within Australia. They include inpatient programs, outpatient programs, day programs, community treatment and community support options. Eating disorder treatment services can be searched for by location, so that you may find help that is closest to you. If you cannot find what you are looking for, you can contact the community-based eating disorders organisation in your state and they will be able to guide you in the right direction.
