Public survey invites Australians to contribute to national eating disorder strategy

People from across Australia are being invited to complete a public survey that will help ensure broad input into a National Eating Disorders Strategy 2023-2033.
Responses to the public survey, organised by the National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC), will help refine key priorities for the National Strategy.
As a survey respondent, you will be asked about your perspectives on the system of care for eating disorders, including prevention, identification and response, treatment, and psychosocial support.
The survey is open to all Australians who are over the age of 15 and who have experience of an eating disorder – for instance, as someone with the illness, as a caregiver, as a friend, relative or colleague, or as a health professional.
As a member of the NEDC steering committee and the NEDC psychosocial working group, I join with national director, Dr Beth Shelton, in inviting and encouraging you to set aside 15 minutes to complete this survey. It is a great way to make your experience count in helping to ease the suffering of others.
In addition to completing the survey, your assistance in promoting the survey by sharing it through your networks and channels, including social media and newsletters will be greatly appreciated. The flyer comes with a QR code that can be printed or emailed.

Postscript: Hurry, don’t delay – the survey is open now, and closes on 7th February.

As founder of Life Stories Diary my prime motivation is to connect with people who want to share their story. Why? Because your story is important. My goal with this blog is to provide a platform for you to share your story with others. Building on the accomplishments of The Diary Healer the Life Stories Diary blog will continue to be a voice for people who have experienced an eating disorder, trauma or other mental health challenge, and provide inspiration through the narrative, to live a full and meaningful life.

My nine books about eating disorders focus on learning through story-sharing. Prior to writing books, which include my memoir, I had a long career in print journalism. In 2017, I graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy (Creative Writing), researching the usefulness of journaling and writing when recovering from an eating disorder or other traumatic experience.
Today I combine my writing expertise with life experience to help others self-heal. Clients receive mentoring in narrative techniques and guidance in memoir-writing. I also share my editing expertise with people who are writing their story and wish to prepare it to publication standard. I encourage everyone to write their story. Your story counts!
