Eating Disorders NS

In celebration of #GlobalPeerSupport Day we have some great news to share.

Thanks to support from the Mental Health Foundation of NS, we are able to train more mentors!

Our mentors are matched with folks looking for peer support on their recovery journey. We know that everyone's path is different. Having someone in your corner who understands and has been there can be incredibly helpful.

Thank you Mental Health Foundation of NS, for sharing our belief that no-one should have to face an eating disorder alone. ❤️
