    EDSNA Support Groups

    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:

    • Professionally-facilitated by people with extensive backgrounds in eating disorders.
    • Effective. An independent evaluation of the impact of our groups by  two graduate students from the University of Calgary demonstrated participants report increased feelings of hope, connection and empowerment, with decreasing levels of shame, stigma and isolation.
    • Support groups are not intended to take the place of professional treatment. Read below for more details on the difference between support and treatment.
    • Intended to support to those wishing to continue on the path of recovery in a safe, nonjudgmental environment
    • Limited to a small number of participants allow everyone to participate fully.
    • Very affordable. The fee can be waived if there is financial hardship by emailing
  • 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.
