    Whether you are worried about yourself, a family member or a friend, information is available on all types of eating disorders, early warning signs, treatment options, how to support someone with an eating disorder and much more. 

    The Eating Disorders Helpline is a free and confidential service providing information peer support for people experiencing eating disorders or related issues. We offer a safe place for you to seek information, openly discuss your experience with eating disorders and ask any questions you may have.

    Call 1300 550 236 or (03) 9417 6598. You can call the Helpline anonymously on between 9.30am - 5pm, Monday - Friday. If you are calling after hours, please leave a message and your call will be returned. 

    Support Group
    The Footscray Recovery Support Group is for people with an eating disorder who have already taken the first steps towards recovery but would like some extra support.  You must be over 18 to attend, and not a current hospital in-patient or someone whose physical or emotional health is severely compromised.

    It is not a therapy group, but a peer support group for sharing experiences, discovering new coping strategies and stress management skills in a safe environment where you can enjoy the interaction with people in a similar situation to your own. Cost: $3, payable at the beginning of the session.

    Booking: Please book in by 12pm on the day of the support group. There are two ways you can book:

    1. Send an SMS with your first name, location and date of group to 0481 071 211 or
    2. Contact the Helpline on 1300 550 236 Monday-Friday between 9.30am and 5.00pm

    Address: The Body Voice Centre 50 Wolverhampton Street Footscray
