Eating Disorder Young People’s Service (EDYS)
The Eating Disorder Young People’s Service (EDYS) started in April 2016 and provides treatment to children and young people with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OFSED) in Liverpool and Sefton. This dedicated Community-based service provides a timely access to multi-disciplinary assessment and intervention to children and young-people from across Liverpool and Sefton up to the age of 18.
The team is made up of 1 Consultant Psychiatrist, 1 Consultant Paediatrician, 1 Clinical Psychologist working alongside an array of staff including a dietician, nurse practitioner, family therapist and a support worker. Outpatient’s appointments will be held at Fresh CAMHS in Alder Hey or 3TC House, Waterloo. We will always try and arrange your appointment at the most convenient location for you.
The EDYs team is a multi-disciplinary team which means we have a variety of different staff to help meet the needs of those referred to our service, providing care such as; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in individual assessment, dietetic advice and meal planning, physical reviews, family therapy and home visits if necessary.
Our team are closely linked with other Mental Heath & Eating Disorder Services throughout the North West, such as Young People’s Advisory Service (YPAS), Cheshire Eating Disorder Service (CHEDs) and Rathbone Adult Eating Disorder Service, for when patients are approaching 18 years of age and need further treatment.
