Anorexia Nervosa study

Kelly Dann, a PhD candidate at the University of Sydney,  is seeking participants for an online study about everyday function for individuals who have a current or past diagnosis of Anorexia Nervosa. The aim of this study is to better understand how the thoughts and feelings experienced by people who are currently diagnosed with, or have a past history of Anorexia Nervosa, may affect their social, academic and occupational functioning. The study is an anonymous online survey which will take no more than 30 minutes. Anyone aged 18 years or older who has received a diagnosis of Anorexia Nervosa at some stage in their life can participate.

Free online presentation

The PACE Service, in collaboration with the Campbelltown Library, is pleased to present the following free community education session:

Thriving in a crisis: Strategies for managing worry, stress and anxiety

In times of crisis it’s normal to feel worried, stressed and anxious, and the COVID-19 pandemic is serious crisis. It’s dramatically changed the way we live, and created a huge amount of uncertainty. The way we deal with the worry, stress and anxiety caused by the crisis will have a significant impact on our mental health and our quality of life, so it’s important to have strategies which will help us deal with them effectively.
