The Eating Issues Centre is a community based non-profit charity promoting positive body image and prevention of eating issues as well as offering supportive therapeutic options for people affected by eating issues.
The Eating Issues Centre is funded by Qld Health to provide information and referral, free counselling, therapeutic groups, and peer support for people with eating issues throughout Queensland.
We accept referrals and provide services to people over 16 of all genders and a medical diagnosis is not required to access services. We also provide information and referrals to carers and professionals.
We value the sharing of recovery wisdom and aim to involve people with a lived experience of body image and eating issues throughout the organisation.
The Eating Issues Centre works closely with the Eating Disorders Association in providing support to people living with and recovering from eating issues, and their carer’s and loved ones.
Recovery Through Connected Eating
Welcome to the first in our series of video podcasts (Vodcasts), as part of our Community Table Program - Recovery Through Connected Eating.
An online conversation that will help guide the creation of a nurturing and connected environment, where people in recovery can rediscover their relationship with food and move towards sharing meals in non-threatening settings.
This episode features Belinda Chelius, General Manager at TEIC, interviewing Megan Bray, registered dietitian and senior mentor. They explore common challenges and ideas around connected eating skills to assist in overcoming these challenges.
