This group is a second intake for people who missed the October 11, 2018 start date

There will be no Orientation session for this intake.

After consulting with EDSNA facilitators, parents, clinicians at the Eating Disorder Foundation of Newfoundland & Labrador, and Mental Health Foundations, we have made some changes to our programming for parents, partners, and loved ones.

This group will be a CLOSED 7-week educational pilot series for parents, partners, and loved ones (18+), featuring guest speakers from the Eating Disorder Program at the University of Alberta Hospital (Unit 4F4).

Participants will:

  • Learn how each member of the treatment team (dietitian, nurse, psychiatrist, recreation therapist) supports recovery
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions of these professionals who assist in the treatment process.

While the previous will be new to EDSNA, group participants can still expect to find support from one another in a group that is always professionally facilitated, and intended to foster a sense of empowerment and hope.

Groups will first meet Thursday, October 18th, 2018,

and will meet every Thursday thereafter up to –and including– November 29, 2018

Dates include:

  • October 18, 25
  • November 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
