Contacting a new service for the first time can be a big step. At the Statewide Eating Disorder Service (SEDS) we have a dedicated intake worker available five days a week to take your call. These workers have a thorough understanding of eating disorders, and are happy to hear from you and see how we can help you, regardless of where you are at.
To find out about our services, discuss your situation, or access information, please contact SEDS.
If you are ready to meet us and discuss care please contact us, or print a SEDS Medical Practitioner Referral Form and take it to your GP or medical practitioner.
At SEDS we understand that it can be difficult to help a person living with an eating disorder. We want to support you and help you get the necessary information, support and care.
To find out about our services, discuss your situation or access information, please contact SEDS.

We know many professionals support people with eating disorders. You can commence the referral process as follows:
We welcome referrals from other Community Mental Health Teams. Please contact the Intake Worker directly on (08) 8198 0800 Monday to Friday during office hours. Our staff member will guide you through the referral process and answer any questions you may have. Please do not refer us using the CBIS Referral Screen.
The SA Health SEDS Model of Care for Eating Disorders in SA uses a collaborative approach to care with other SA Health mental health teams. We are not able to take over your patient’s care when you initiate a referral. Please continue your care as you work with us. We do not provide general mental health case management or crisis management.
