Nip it in the bud: Intervening early for young people with eating disorders

About this resource

This paper presents a number of future directions which aim to ensure that in Australia we are
able to provide the optimal care and treatment for young people, their families and indeed anyone
who will experience an eating disorder. 

  • Increase access to evidence-based early interventions for eating disorders
  • Increase the capacity of the workforce to deliver evidence-based early interventions
  • Provide national coordination and leadership
  • Increase access to evidence-based prevention programs for young people at risk
  • Build awareness of all eating disorders and reduce stigma in the community
  • Address gaps in research and data
