Peer Support

Connecting with others who understand your experience can be incredibly helpful.

Our trained Peer Supporters draw on their experience with eating disorder recovery, providing non-judgmental encouragement and support through our groups and individual mentoring.

All our Peer Support programs are free. A diagnosis or referral is not needed. Whether you have been living with an eating disorder, or are concerned about your relationship with food, eating and/or your body, we are here for you.

To access these programs and other resources, head to BodyPeaceCanada.ca/peer-support.
