The NSW government has promised almost $ 10 million to boost support services for eating disorders over the next four years.
NSW Health Minister Tanya Davies announced $ 8.6 million to extend the work of the InsideOut Foundation and expand its front line staff.
"This financial boost will enable us to connect more people with the medical and mental health support they need when being treated for eating disorders," said Ms Davies in a Sunday statement.
It will bring current state government funding for eating disorders services to $ 16.8 million over the next four years.
The organization has specialist researchers, clinicians and policy makers aiming to treat eating disorders in Australia and find a healing.
"He takes a team to look after someone who lives with a eating disorder – this can be an overwhelming experience for the patient and their carers, and also to the clinician. The expansion will enable them to be helped through this process, "said Director Sarah Maguire in a statement.
