Equity in eating disorder treatment means more than just training and research in mental health and support plans. It means paying attention to the full picture, and recognising the social and cultural factors which can play a role in someone’s recovery.
Equality is about giving everyone the same resources, whereas equity is about distributing resources based on the need of each person with the hope to achieve a fair outcome for everyone involved.
All of our therapists take a person-led approach. They understand the values of many backgrounds, communities and cultures and factors which can play a role in our relationship to food and body.
