About Eating Disorders Families Australia

Eating Disorders Families Australia (EDFA) is an organisation and website dedicated to families and carers in Australia looking after young people with an eating disorder. Eating Disorders demand families and carers play key roles in both the successful treatment and recovery of their family member with an eating disorder and the long-term support of those with an extended illness. Research evidence shows that families and carers can be the difference between a short and long term illness, between a partial and full recovery and are often literally saving the life of their loved one.

EDFA provides access to resources and information about caring for a family member with an eating disorder, as well as opportunities for peer support.
