What participants have found helpful from attending support groups:
"Relating to others"
"Finding others with similar experiences"
"Hearing I'm not alone in my feelings"
"Relief to talk to others who struggle with the same issues"
"The best suport I have received in regard to my eating disorder"
"The support groups have been invaluable to my recovery. I get to share without fear of judgment and receive support from people who are going through the same things"
"Support group is one of the few places where I feel like I can really let my guard down and not worry about being judged"
What group does a support person attend?
Sometimes first-time participants bring along one or more support people to the groups. All are welcome! We want you to know that we expect support people to attend their own support group (Friends & Family) while their loved one attends Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, or Binge-Eating group. Because one of the most supportive aspects of the groups is the chance to connect to others with similar experiences, without fear or shame, participants in eating disorder groups often feel uncomfortable sharing their experiences with individuals who are not suffering themselves from the disorder. Additionally, support people need their own support, and can find it in our Friends & Family group. Thank you!
