Southern Support Eating Disorders (SSED) Service is community based and provides free help to anyone who has questions, concerns or symptoms of an eating disorder.

What we offer:
We provide an assessment and referral pathway for people with symptoms and/or behaviours consistent with an eating disorder.

  • An initial confidential assessment over 1-3 sessions.
  • Brief self-help strategy sessions (up to 6).
  • Education and information.
  • Advice for family/whanau to access support networks.
  • We work alongside your GP.

Where appropriate, and in consultation with you and your health provider, a referral will be made to other specialist services.
