The Butterfly Foundation represents all people affected by eating disorders and negative body image – a person with the illness, their family and their friends.
As a leading national voice in supporting their needs, Butterfly highlights the realities of seeking treatment for recovery, and advocates for improved services from both government and independent sources.
Eating disorders are serious neuropsychiatric disorders with significantly distorted eating behaviours and high risk of physical as well as psychological harm. Left unaddressed, the medical, psychological and social consequences can be serious and long term. Once entrenched eating disorders can impact on every aspect of an individual’s life and for many, can be life threatening.
The Butterfly National Helpline is staffed by trained counsellors experienced in assisting with eating disorders. Butterfly also pilots treatment programs that address a gap in mainstream treatment models, and offers recovery and carers support groups.
Butterfly provides information, research and support to those affected by eating disorders through the following services:
- Butterfly’s National Helpline 1800 33 4673 (toll-free helpline)
- Treatment services
o Intensive Outpatient Program
o Outpatient Program for Young People
