Eating Disorders Queensland is a statewide, community-based not-for-profit organisation.

We promote positive body image and prevention of eating issues. Supportive therapeutic options for individuals living with eating issues and their families and friends are also offered.

Eating Disorder Referral Pathways

The Eating Issues Centre (TEIC) and Eating Disorders Association (EDA) have merged to form Eating Disorders Queensland (EDQ).

EDQ is funded by Queensland Health. We provide the largest community support and treatment services for individuals and families living with and recovering from eating disorders, their carers and loved ones. By the sharing of recovery wisdom we aim to involve people with a lived experience, carers and family members and loved ones.

We would like to respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which Eating Disorders Queensland operate, and Elders past, present and emerging. Honouring the women elders in diverse communities of which we are a part. Celebrating the extraordinary diversity of women’s bodies, genders, sexualities, capacities and relationships that we all represent.

We acknowledge the lived experience of those with an Eating Disorder and other Mental Health issues.

Also those impacted by suicide or substance use and the contribution  families, friends, carers and professionals make to their recovery. We respect and value their opinions  and integrate their opinions into serviced delivery and change.

Respect is also due to those in the community who have tirelessly advocated for positive social and political change. Particularly around issues predominantly impacting women and children including women’s rights, equality, sexual and domestic violence, and changes for the LGBTIQ+ community.

Welcome to Country Aunty Dawn Daylight – Elder for the Juggera First Nations, explains the significance of our local area - Musgrave Park in West End.

We are an accessible service, supportive and inclusive of Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander communities, as well as culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
