Our Mission / Objective

To bring about change in the culture, policy and practice of prevention, treatment and support for eating disorders. Butterfly is committed to ensuring that any Australian with an eating disorder can access affordable, evidence based care irrespective of their postcode or economic status.

Our Services

Prevention
Education and awareness
Butterfly works with young people in schools and community organisations to deliver our education programs. Utilising interactive sessions we address some of the known risk factors that can contribute to negative body image and the development of eating disorders.
The main programs offered are Free to BE and Dove Body Think
Butterfly’s education programs have to date reached over 550,000 young people and 6,000 professionals and parents around the country
Clinical
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Under an exclusive licence from the Monte Nido disorder treatment centres in the USA, Butterfly has implemented the Intensive Outpatient Program for eating disorders and is for individuals with a diagnosed eating disorder. It provides individual treatment plans, while also intimately involving families and carers as a way of helping people emerge from the devastation of an eating disorder. It is aimed at achieving motivation and action towards recovery.
The program operates for 3 days a week over an 18 week period. The key aims of the IOP are to empower each persons’ “healthy self” and to instill the belief that recovery is possible.

Counselling
National Helpline (ED HOPE)
Butterfly operates ED HOPE – the only national phone and online counselling support for people experiencing disordered eating, body image issues and eating disorders, as well as their families and carers. It also provides referrals and general information to health and other professionals.

This support line receives an average of 1,000 contacts per month (45% of whom are under 25).

Community

Carer’s support – by using an evidence based approach, equip carers with the skills and knowledge so they can provide care at home.
