Welcome to the F.E.A.S.T Canada Task Force page. We are here for you!
We are here to assist you in finding the care you are seeking for your loved one. We are sorry you needed to find us and glad you’ve found your way here. The Canada Task Force is also ready, willing and able to help support your advocacy efforts!
The task force seeks to:
- share information about navigating successful treatment across each Canadian province and territory
- address eating disorder issues and concerns specifically relevant in a federal and provincial context
- raise awareness about F.E.A.S.T. in Canada
- promote F.E.A.S.T. goals and principles, especially the promotion of evidence-based treatment
The task force is chaired by Lisa Burns who resides in Vernon BC (she would gladly welcome your help) and will report to the F.E.A.S.T. Executive and Board. Lisa is the parent of a young adult with an eating disorder and is an advocate both in Canada and abroad. Lisa’s passion is that no parent/carer will walk alone as they navigate finding care for their loved one.
Please feel free to reach out to Lisa. She is standing by, ready to assist, support and provide a shoulder to lean on. This journey is a marathon and no one needs walk it alone.
