(YYC) Support Group for Caregivers
October 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| $70.00 – $100.00
This support group is for ADULTS (18+) who are the parents, partners, siblings, friends, loved ones, and supporters of someone with an eating disorder or disordered eating.
For groups for people with eating disorders, please refer to our Full Programming Calendar.
Because no one should have to face supporting someone with an eating disorder alone, this professionally facilitated support group promotes self discovery in a safe space, and offers participants the opportunity to connect with other caregivers.
EDSNA support groups are always:
- Professionally-facilitated by people with extensive backgrounds in eating disorders.
- Intended to support to those wishing to support someone through their path to recovery in a safe, nonjudgmental environment
- Limited to a small number of participants allow everyone to participate fully.
We welcome parents, partners, siblings, extended family, friends.. anyone over the age of 18 who is supporting someone with an eating disorder.
