Eating disorders North Sydney | Broadway | UTS

Over 1 million Australians are living with an eating disorder. Less than a quarter of those receive treatment or support. The factors that contribute to the onset of an eating disorder are complex. No single cause of eating disorders has been identified however known contributing risk factors include genetic vulnerability, psychological factors and socio-cultural influences.

Helping build a positive self-image, one day at a time.

Taking the first steps towards treatment can be challenging. A person with an eating disorder may feel stressed, nervous, anxious, embarrassed, ashamed or scared as they enter the treatment and recovery phase. Some may still be in denial about their problem, while others may feel like they have their disorder under control, even when they don’t. Seeking help as early as possible greatly reduces the severity, duration and impact of an eating disorder.

Different people respond to different types of treatment, even if they are experiencing the same eating disorder. A person with an eating disorder will usually receive a combination of treatments as part of their recovery program, including psychology, psychiatry, dietetics , nutrition , general medicine, family therapy as well as self-help and various complementary or allied treatments.
