We urgently need more community support and hospital beds to provide effective, supportive care for people with eating disorders. Lives are being lost on the waiting lists.

I am also waiting for a bed; and have been refused treatment in the past as I was "too ill to go to hospital; had had anorexia for too long and would never get better".

As a recovered patient, I understand the devastation that NSW health creates with the lack of quality care in the public system - Where to be admitted you need to be on deaths door, and even then, there are no guarantees that a treatment will be received. I have personally lost too many dear friends to this horrifying disease. Something needs to be done. Ministry of Health, needs to step up and take this seriously.

I have a young friend who is battling an eating disorder brought about by family trauma. She's brilliant and full of promise except for this illness that is robbing her and those who love her of the joy of life.

because I have an eating disorder and people will only help you if you are on the verdge of death or if you are willing to pay bucket loads of money. people dont try to understand the full extent and severity of eating disorders, untill they kill people.

Two beds are not enough! Eating disorders have HIGHEST mortality rate of all mental illnesses
