  • Parent Support Group for Parents of Children with Eating Disorders

    Join us for a monthly support group for parents who have children suffering from eating disorders or who have an adolescent transitioning to adult care. Each month we share information and encourage each other. Guest speakers share their knowledge and insights to equip parents with tools to successfully work with their children. The group supplies hope, inspiration and strength.


    The facilitator is a mother whose child is an eating disorder survivor. She knows first hand how hard it is to provide the support and effective treatment children need to beat eating disorders. She also knows that eating disorders can be cured and she encourages and supports parents as they support their children. 
    Each session is informal, and we encourage you to drop in or come for the whole evening. It runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

  • Bulimia and Anorexia Nervosa Association

    By helping shed light on an issue that is filled with stigma and secrecy, we draw attention to the need to support further research, provide better treatment options and enhanced training, engage in greater prevention efforts, acknowledge the need for caregiver support, and stigma-bust in this under-resourced area.
