Model for Early Intervention and Integrated Solutions in Eating Disorders

About this resource

Operation EAT (Early Action and Treatment) is a model of intervening early in eating disorders for a community. It is an approach targeting disordered eating, emerging eating disorders, and early-in-illness treatment to tackle these challenging and debilitating conditions and prevent long term morbidity and mortality. It uses multiple primary care settings, health practitioners, families and the wider community to provide integrated, coherent responses to the issue. It is suitable for primary health networks, area mental health services, local government areas and any other catchment based health promotion service.
