Eating Disorders Nova Scotia is a rapidly growing, virtual, community-based organization. We believe that no-one should have to face an eating disorder alone. Last year, we supported over a thousand people along their recovery journey. All of our supports—including one-on-one Peer Mentoring, Peer Support Groups, Peer Support Chat, Workshops, Family Support, Therapy and Nutrition Counselling—are delivered virtually. A referral or a diagnosis are not required to start one’s healing journey. We know that recovering from an eating disorder is tough—accessing support and treatment shouldn’t be.
After 20+ years of supporting people living with eating disorders in Nova Scotia we are now expanding our Peer Support Programs nationally.
We are creating a National Youth Advisory Council to help guide that expansion. In alignment with our value of co-design with youth with lived experience, we will be engaging youth throughout the initiative to ensure their perspectives and expertise is effectively reflected in our work and in the evaluation of the project.
