Telehealth Conferencing
We are now offering telehealth services
  • EDQ treatment and support services will be offered face to face or via telehealth (Zoom or phone)
  • EDQ Peer Support Worker can provide 1:1 meal support and peer support to clients via telehealth

What is telehealth? Telehealth is a secure videoconferencing method that allows practitioners and clients to connect when they are not able to meet in person.

What does this mean for EDQ services? You can still contact us on or (07) 3844 6055 for all enquiries. Individual Counselling, Carer Coaching and some groups are still available via telehealth.

Why are we doing this? EDQ is committed to preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our community and reducing the risk of exposure to our staff, clients and visitors.

Covid-19: Stay Updated
There's so much information being released at the moment and it can be hard to keep up with what is a) current and b) accurate. Avoid being overwhelmed with potentially conflicting messages: we recommend reducing your intake of information relating to COVID-19 to local information as much as possible.

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.

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.

Our General Manager Belinda Chelius  joined Carer Leslee, and Lived Experience Speaker Laura recently to answer questions we received from clients, regarding the December holiday season; a difficult time for those in eating disorder recovery, as well as for their loved ones.

Recovered - Eating Issues in Our Own Words. Filmed in 2016 when we were still The Eating Issues Centre. This short film is an introduction to who we are and what we do. The main theme of this film is that recovery from eating issues is possible, whoever you are and whatever stage of treatment you find yourself at.
