Self-referral is any individual wanting to engage in our services, need to contact us directly. This can be via web enquiry, email or phone. The intake process is the same regardless of what services you wish to connect with.

Our intake process involves an initial phone assessment. This will cover eligibility and suitability for accessing EDQ services. 

Following this, there will be a face-to-face (where possible) intake appointment with one of our Eating Disorder Practitioners. In this appointment, the practitioner can provide information on all our services as well as current waitlists.

Contact our Care Navigator at any time for assistance regarding wait times and booking appointments: Rohie Marshall carenavigator@edq.org.au or (07) 3844 6055
