We are now offering telehealth services as well as in-person service.
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. This provides you with more options, and allows all of our clients to connect with us in the way that suits them best.
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. For more information and support on using telehealth, please contact us.
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.
Estimated completion time is 10-15 minutes.
This form is for individuals seeking treatment for themselves.
If you are a carer/key support person, or looking for treatment for another person, please email firstname.lastname@example.org instead.
Hello, this will be your first step of engaging with Eating Disorders Qld. We acknowledge that it can be difficult to discuss your experiences with eating disorder/s and body image issues, particularly at first.
To make it a bit easier, we have developed this form that you can complete and send back to us before we call you.
You will receive a call to discuss the information provided, or we are happy to complete the form with you. During this call we can discuss any questions or touch on issues pertaining to the questions on the form.
After the phone assessment has been completed and we both feel that EDQ is a good fit one of our practitioners will arrange a more comprehensive ‘intake’ session.
During an intake session, you and the practitioner will review your needs, recovery goals and expectations of therapy/holistic recovery needs. This session takes around 90 minutes.
We will also go through Confidentiality and our shared Rights & Responsibilities. Looking forward to meeting you!
Due to the high demand for EDQ’s funded services, and allowing for fair equitable distribution of therapeutic resources to the community:
• EDQ requires 48 working hours’ notice of cancellation for all appointments
• In the event of 3 late cancellations or no-shows, your practitioner will discuss other support options with you before booking another appointment
EDQ acknowledges recovery and the therapeutic process is not linear. Please discuss any changing needs or barriers with your practitioner so EDQ can best support you and the greater community.
To access services with EDQ, we require that you engage regularly with a GP to monitor your medical stability. As part of this process, a GP will need to sign EDQ’s client medical clearance form. Medical monitoring is required for all clients, no matter what kind of eating disorder behaviour is present. Eating disorders have significant impacts on physical health.
If you do not currently have a suitable GP, please let us know and we can assist you to find one.
