The National eating disorders collaboration which is free for anyone to join is asking for people to have their say about how Eating disorder services should be designed at their annual members meeting. They are interested in viewpoints of all stakeholders including carers. 

Belinda Caldwell CEO of Eating Disorders Victoria will be speaking. She was on the Board of Directors at FEAST until 2019. 

In another thread we have all discussed that there are many areas of concern for how treatment happens in Australia. This is an opportunity, particularly for those in Melbourne to attend and get involved by attending the members meeting on 27th and 28th of February 2020. The members meeting does move around the country so is not always in the same state but does tend to be in capital cities.
