Getting There

Last Updated: February 2010 

Eating disorders are often isolating and traumatic - and recovery may seem almost impossible. In this clips from the "Getting There" DVD, produced by the Eating Disorders Foundation of Victoria, we hear the personal stories of people from diverse backgrounds who have recovered from a variety of eating disorders. They warmly share their stories of recovery and how they overcome such feelings as low self-esteem, depression and anxiety, which often co-exist with an eating disorder.
