EDSNA offers support groups in Edmonton, Calgary and online, throughout the year.
Thanks to funding from the Ministry of Health, Addiction and Mental Health Branch, EDSNA is able to provide these low-cost support groups throughout the year for people both directly and indirectly affected by eating disorders.
Our groups are professionally facilitated and open to people with ANY type of eating disorder over the age of 18. We don’t require a diagnosis or referral and registration is through our website.
EDSNA groups are:
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.
