Are you the parent of a child or adolescent with an eating disorder?

Eating disorders affect entire families, especially parents, who can experience anxiety & stress when re-feeding their child & interrupting disordered eating behaviours. Parents often report a lack of support.

You are invited to join a national research study examining the implementation of virtual parent-led peer support groups, for parents of children & adolescents with eating disorders. This group may help you learn skills and obtain helpful resources about how to support your child, receive support for yourself, and be part of a community of parents, just like you.
