Eating Disorders Queensland is a statewide community based not-for-profit organisation promoting positive body image and prevention of eating issues. We provide supportive therapeutic options for individuals living with eating issues and their families and friends.
The Eating Issues Centre (TEIC) and Eating Disorders Association (EDA) have merged to form Eating Disorders Queensland (EDQ). EDQ is funded by Queensland Health to provide the largest community support and treatment services for individuals and families living with and recovering from eating disorders, their carers and loved ones. We value the sharing of recovery wisdom and aim to involve people with a lived experience, carers and family members and loved ones.
EDQ would like to respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which Eating Disorders Queensland operate, and Elders past, present and emerging. We honour the women elders in diverse communities of which we are a part and we celebrate 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, 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.
We pay respects to those amongst the community who have tirelessly advocated for positive social and political change around issues predominantly impacting women and children including women’s rights, equality, sexual and domestic violence, and changes for the LGBTIQ+ community.
