The Eating Disorder Coordinator is an Alberta Mental Health Board funded Calgary Regional Health Authority operated position that provides a central contact in the Calgary Region for consultation to individuals, families and professionals on eating disorders and the services available to them. This service provides telephone consultation only; not treatment. The EDC also participates in the development of health promotion strategies to reduce the incidence of eating disorders, and assists in program planning both within the CRHA and the broader service network. Currently, the Calgary region is working within a provincial framework to develop Day treatment and some Outpatient Treatment services. This service is not currently available but we are excited to be working with the Alberta Mental Health Board to design this service for individuals at risk or suffering form eating disorders. The CRHA is committed to excellence in providing accessible, accountable and an integrated, community-based health system which promotes shared responsibility for improved health.
