Sven knew he couldn’t last until a bed was available. Although he needed to leave the province to start getting better in doing so he was able to reconnect with himself which began the recovery process. This is Sven’s story of recovery and how self-help groups, mentors, spirituality and online resources helped him along that journey.
Eating disorders are serious, complex mental illnesses that can impact anyone. With support and treatment, full recovery is possible.
