The Eating Disorder Clinic, located in Prince George, serves children, youth, and adults living with eating disorders. It offers in-person outpatient care for people in Prince George and the surrounding area (and for people who prefer to travel to Prince George), and virtual services (phone or video chat) for people anywhere in the North.
The team includes a manager, a team lead, an administrative assistant, youth and adult therapists, dietitians, nurses, an occupational therapist, family physicians, life skills workers, and a psychiatrist.

- Education for individuals and family members

Virtual care: Everyone in the North, regardless of where they live, can now access the clinic virtually, via telehealth or video. The clinic supports regional clients with diagnosis, treatment planning, and connections to a full range of services in their home communities.
Regional groups: The clinic has been working hard to build and integrate groups for adults that can be accessed virtually from anywhere in the region.
Case consultation and support: The clinic and team offer individual support and consultation to physicians, nurses, dietitians, counsellors, and other professionals who are working with clients with eating disorders.
Bridging the gap: The clinic offers an inpatient liaison assistance for teams supporting clients requiring inpatient admissions in their home communities that are eating disorder related.
Connection to other programs: We facilitate referrals to more specialized programs, such as those at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver or BC Children’s Hospital / Looking Glass Residence. This includes helping clients and teams determine the best fit for care options.
