Event description

Description

Eating Disorders NS's peer support groups offer a supportive and safe environment where people experiencing an eating disorder can share successes, gain insights and strategies, and find hope. These pro-recovery groups are facilitated by trained peer mentors for Eating Disorders NS, who have recovered from an eating disorder themselves. This model allows the group to establish a sense of trust and community with each other while they explore topics such as:

  • mindfulness
  • body acceptance
  • self-care
  • normalizing eating
  • communicating with family and friends
  • managing relapses

No diagnosis or doctor's referral is necessary, Our groups are intended to provide support to those at any stage of recovery.

NOTE: EDNS' support groups do not provide treatment or therapy.

Registration Fee

There is a registration fee of $85 for 12 sessions. This fee helps EDNS cover the cost of offering the group (facilitators, materials, space) and is meant to help make our programs sustainable over time. It is also an investment that reflects your commitment to the group and your recovery.

If you are experiencing financial difficulty and can't afford the fees, but can commit to attending the sessions, please contact michelle@eatingdisordersns.ca
