Peer Support

Group Peer Support

Groups are offered to people 18 years of age and older,  three times a year. Groups run for 12 weeks, meeting once a week in the evening for 90 minutes. The content of each weekly session is identified by the people in the group and generally focuses on mindfulness, body acceptance, normalizing eating, communication with loved ones, setting goals and more. Our groups are run by facilitators who have recovered from an eating disorder and have many years of experience providing peer support and facilitating groups.

Registration is required.

Individuals do not require a referral or a diagnosis.

All supports are offered free of charge.

Individual Peer Support

Talking with someone who has recovered from an eating disorder can be very helpful. Through our Individual Peer Support Program, those struggling with an eating disorder are connected to a trained Peer Supporter, who can provide informal, non-judgemental support and hope for recovery. Peers meet up once or twice, or on a regular basis.

Family and Friends Peer Support Groups

Our Family and Friends Peer Support Groups are led by parents who have been there – caring for someone who has been through the ups and downs of an eating disorder. These groups are open to any one who cares for someone with an eating disorder – family, partner or friend.

We currently have groups in Halifax, New Minas and Sydney.
