Last year, while most children drifted off to sleep in their own bed 143 children went to bed in a hospital as a result of an eating disorder. 

Eating disorders don’t discriminate.

Recovering from an eating disorder can be a painfully slow, isolating and mentally exhausting time….Especially for a child.

At Monash Health, we see children suffering as young as 14 years old, making this debilitating mental illness one of the fastest growing in our community. And with family and carers often knowing little about eating disorders, it may come as a shock when someone close is diagnosed.

We recognise these difficult times.

At Monash Health, we care for the largest number of children with eating disorders in the southern hemisphere. We aim to provide support to young people so they can leave hospital and continue their recovery from home within the care of their families and extended network.

We need your help.

Your generous contribution will assist us in building a comprehensive and specialist mental health service in partnership with our adolescent medicine unit, to provide first class care to children experiencing an eating disorder. With your donation our expert care will reach over 230 children suffering from an eating disorder each year.

Through tailored, comprehensive support, our service can: 

  • reduce the rate of readmission, 
  • avoid further trauma, 
  • build a carer’s confidence, and
  • help families stay together. 

Recovery is possible. 

Help us fund the unique care needed to treat children suffering from eating disorders.
