Consumer checklist (Wade et al.)

About this resource

Getting treatment for an eating disorder can be a daunting process given that most people know little about eating disorders and effective treatments. It can also feel uncomfortable to ask too many questions of health professionals. People living with an eating disorder, their carers and supports need to find someone they can work with. Treatment and recovery can be a long process, and it’s important that people make sure they are working effectively with their health professionals over the long term. We encourage people to ask the questions in this checklist before starting their treatment journey.
