Wandi Nerida is the trading name for Butterfly Residential Care Pty Ltd and is limited by shares. It is a not-for-profit company 100 percent owned by the Butterfly Foundation, Australia’s leading national charity for eating disorders and body image issues.
Wandi Nerida is situated on a beautiful, serene, 25-acre block in the Mooloolah Valley on the Sunshine Coast and will make a significant contribution to improving treatment options for Australians with eating disorders. It will be a licensed private mental health facility that provides a unique service within the eating disorder care continuum and accepts referrals from all states and territories in Australia. Within the ecosystem of eating disorder services, Wandi Nerida will fill the gap between hospital admission and outpatient care to provide an opportunity for a more intensive psychological recovery and more seamless integration of services.
This purpose-built, multidisciplinary staffed facility will provide a healing space where people living with eating disorders can work, over time, towards healthy minds and bodies. The B-FREEDT model is recovery orientated integrating lived experience as a key feature of our staffing model. In addition, to Wandi Nerida providing a safe, innovative environment for those most in need of psychological and physical care, it will be an important pilot project for future Australian models and facilities. The care we deliver will allow us to gather the evidence we need to make the case for the provision of high-level residential care and support across multiple sites around Australia.
