To bring about positive change, we need to encourage a compassionate, understanding society where people feel able to talk about their illness. We need to ensure that everyone knows how to spot the early symptoms, equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge to make a fast referral, and establish funding so that everyone can get the treatment they need as quickly as possible. In everything we do, we focus on early treatment – we know that the faster someone can access treatment for their eating disorder, the better their chance of a full and sustained recovery.
It means that there’s a lot of work to be done, and we can’t do it without your help.
Lives are put at risk by long waiting times for treatment. This is unacceptable and we must change it.
Medical students receive less than two hours of teaching on eating disorders. We're worth more than 2 hours.
Mental Health Strategy funding is crucial to securing treatment for those dealing with eating disorders in Northern Ireland.
