These Terms are designed to ensure that your use of the resource does not break any laws. The Stories from Experience resource maintained by The Butterfly Foundation, was developed by a project of the Australian Department of Health, called the National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC). Here and there after any reference to NEDC, implies that responsibility lies with The Butterfly Foundation.
