Free eating disorder treatment services in Perth 

Free psychological therapy services are provided by the Centre for Clinical Interventions (CCI) in Northbridge for people with Anorexia and Bulimia, but not Binge Eating Disorder or ARFID. You will need a GP referral for CCI services and their waitlist varies. They also have a range of self-help resources which you can access yourself.

SCGH and Fiona Stanley have some inpatient services for adults 18 years and over with eating disorders. Both of these services will have waiting lists, and are intended as short–term admissions for medical stabilisation.

The Butterfly Foundation for Eating Disorders has information, chat, and groups (currently online). The national eating disorder helpline is 1800 ED HOPE.
