EDANZ is run by parents, caregivers, and people who have fully recovered from eating disorders. Although we don’t have medical qualifications, we’ve experienced the challenges of eating disorders in real life.
We offer support, help and resources to people caring for loved ones with an eating disorder, but we are not able to offer treatment or medical advice for patients themselves. If you have, or are concerned you have an eating disorder, we urge you to visit your GP. Click here for advice on speaking to your GP for the first time.
This research project involves completing an anonymous 20-30 minute survey to find out the costs of eating disorders experienced by those with a history of an eating disorder and also by carers of a someone who has had an eating disorder. - We want to give people an opportunity to have their say about treatment access issues, treatment and recovery experiences as well as the broad range of impacts of eating disorders, including but not limited to, financial costs.
Thanks to everyone who has participated so far. We have had 87 consumers and 12 carers complete the surveys in the last month. The survey is still open and we are keen to hear from more people, especially those who have been in a caring role. People within the same family can participate to give their differing perspectives. If you are interested in participating or if you know anyone who might be interested, please pass on the link to our study web page where they can read all about the study. Go to www.otago.ac.nz/christchurch/cost-of-eating-disorders to read more about the study and to participate in the survey. If you have any questions about the study, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
