  • 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. The motto is: 

    You’ve got THIS!
