Struggling with an eating disorder? Northern Health now offers help virtually


Eating disorders don't have a look
If you or someone you know is going through an eating disorder, Northern Health’s Regional Eating Disorder Clinic can help.

The clinic, located in Prince George, provides services for children, youth, and adults living with eating disorders, and their families. 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.

Our team

Our 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.

We offer a wide range of services

Since it was founded, the Regional Eating Disorders Clinic hasn’t stopped evolving, and adapting to COVID was no exception.

While some of the changes around in-person care were challenging, we were able to adapt and come out the other side with an even stronger service portfolio and regional presence. For a few ways the Eating Disorders Clinic is continuing to expand its access and services, see below.


  • Assessments
  • Consultations
  • Education for individuals and family members
  • Treatment
  • Family therapy
  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • Meal support
  • Nursing health checks as needed (in person only)

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 /Discovery Vista House and BC Children’s Hospital / Looking Glass Residence. This includes helping clients and teams determine the best fit for care options.
