Clarity in Complexity. Strategic Communication to Support the Prevention and Early Identification of Eating Disorders.

About this resource

Clarity in Complexity: Strategic Communication is a report of the National Eating Disorders Collaboration. The report provides an evidence informed strategic framework and guidance for communication related to the prevention and early identification of eating disorders. A consistent national approach to communication related to eating disorders will require collaboration and integration of activities across many sectors. The report is intended to inform ongoing dialogue between professional sectors, governments and communities as a foundation for safe, effective communication that promotes general good health, supports prevention of eating disorders and enables early intervention when this is required. Two areas of communication are considered in this report: communication about eating disorders to support treatment seeking and de-stigmatisation, and communication about risk factors for eating disorders to support prevention. The term ‘communication’ is used in this report to refer to all strategic approaches to disseminate messages to specific audiences in order to influence their voluntary behaviour.
