First episode rapid early intervention in eating disorders (FREED) is an innovative, evidence-based early intervention model designed to provide young people with recent-onset eating disorders a developmentally-tailored approach and rapid access to treatment. Research shows that early intervention in under 25s who have had an eating disorder for three years or less is associated with greatly improved outcomes and sustained recovery.
Bristol adult eating disorder services are launching the FREED intervention in the city. At this event we will be joined by a member of the London Maudsley Eating Disorders service who pioneered FREED, to tell us more about the approach and outcomes so far. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and discuss this exciting change to eating disorder service provision in Bristol, Bath, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
The Eating Disorder Health Integration Team (ED HIT) are hosting a photography exhibition as part of the event. They are inviting involvement in shaping their aims and presenting their work so far. They are offering you the opportunity to exhibit your work at the Watershed as part of this event.
This will be an interactive and informative event, and everyone is welcome, especially if you have direct or indirect experience of eating disorders or a professional interest in this area.
