New petition demands an increase to eating disorders funding

We live in a world where self-worth is defined by the number on a scales and our value in society is determined by how we look.

Consequently, eating disorders have soared in recent years with doctors reporting a ‘tsunami’ of cases during the pandemic.

Yet health services cannot keep up and we are in a national crisis, with limited inpatient beds, not enough community clinicians, and a backlog of referrals for people in urgent need of help.

One mother is desperate to rewrite the narrative and is spearheading a petition for change.
