Eating Disorder Funding in Alberta: A good start but still far to go

Leave a comment

The Alberta government has pledged $165,000 dollars over three years towards eating disorder treatment. Many see this as a sign that the province is taking the issue of eating disorders more seriously.

While this is clearly a step in the right direction, many people are still calling for a greater commitment to treating eating disorders. Wait lists for youth eating disorder programs are 16-18 weeks in length. Over this time, it is likely that people will deteriorate without the proper support.

People involved in advocacy around eating disorders remain cautiously optimistic. The funding is certainly a good start, but the province still has far to go before the issue of eating disorders is adequately addressed.
