Online Peer Support
Anonymous. Accessible. At your fingertips.

Want the benefits of our peer support groups, but in-person meetings aren't an option? EDNS's new Online Peer Support is a safe, conversational and pro-recovery space for people with eating disorders to connect with others—wherever you are!

Each free, regularly scheduled session is moderated by a trained EDNS Peer Mentor. We've been there. We understand.

Eating Disorders NS

We have all had them. These things that tell us we are too much. Too big, too hungry, too slow, too weak.

Ready to get them out of your life?

Donate them to Eating Disorders NS. We'll make sure they have a fitting end. We are collecting diet culture items that can be smashed. Scales, measuring cups, fitbit, computers full of intsa-shame, magazines, you name it.

Drop off at NSCC Leeds Street between 2-4pm on Sunday Feb 3rd. (Room B227) Join us as we push back, decorating these things with our own messages. (Message us for other drop off options)

Then on Sunday, Feb 10th, get ready to smash diet culture. Stay tuned.

This was shared with us this morning and we love it!
Last night in our online chat we ended by asking "what do you give yourself permission for this week".
What would it be like top to give yourself permission to ask your body what it needs, and then to listen?
What are you taking permission for this week?
