Bumping this up for West Aussies as this public comment period has been extended until the Close of Business Friday the 2nd of February 2018. There are just a few days left. The more comment about the complete lack of public hospital eating disorder beds, day patient services, FBT treatment options, community support services, parent/carer/family support services the better. If you also refer to The Butterfly Foundation's "Paying The Price " plus "Investing In Need" reports as these provide rhe crucial statistics of whats missing and the cost in lives and $$ and what to do to fix it!!
