FREE- Friends and Family Support Group

Free Friends and Family Drop In Support Group 

For Anyone Impacted by a Loved One’s Eating Disorder

Who can attend?

This group is for family & friends of people with eating disorders to share experiences, learn from each other, and express emotions in a confidential and supportive environment.

How will this help me?

Listening to other’s ideas can provide alternative strategies to your particular situation. You may discover new coping mechanisms or stress management approaches. You will be among individuals in similar situations.

Do I have to speak?

Sharing experiences is optional. Eventually people find out that they have more to say than they realized about their particular situation.
