About this resource

In addition to 7 principles for the prevention and management of eating disorders, there are 4 principles for implementation of the approach. These principles are aligned to the Mental Health Standards. Implementation of these principles for eating disorders will contribute to achievement of the mental health standards. Its counterpart, Clarity in Complexity: Strategic Communication to Support the Prevention and Early Identification of Eating Disorders provides the evidence based approach for communicating about eating disorders, engagement in prevention programs and encouragement of help seeking. National Framework March 2012 4 The reports have been subjected to intensive scrutiny and review.
