Happy Birthday Butterfly

From humble beginnings around a kitchen table to what is now the largest national charity for eating disorders and body image issues, Butterfly has been changing lives for the past 20 years. To mark this milestone, we are proud to launch The Next 20 a campaign to set the agenda for the next 20 years of prevention and treatment of all those affected.

For two decades, our efforts in education, advocacy, early intervention, prevention and clinical services have helped to make a difference. However, not only do misconceptions and stigma continue to create barriers to diagnosis and care, but COVID has had a huge impact on mental health in Australia. There has been unprecedented increase in eating disorders and our work is as crucial as ever.

There is still much more that needs to be done but we cant do it without you. Join us as we acknowledge our legacy and outline an ambitious agenda for the next 20 years.

We're here to make a difference for people with body image issues and eating disorders.
