The Eating Disorders Support Network of Alberta is proud to be celebrating ten years of supporting the recovery
journey of Albertans living with an eating disorder and their caregivers. 

Throughout the year we will be celebrating our successes, providing information on eating disorder resources and
sharing our hope for the future. Check out our social media channels and website for updates!


EDSNA – The Eating Disorder Support Network of Alberta – an odd moniker for sure but chosen with intent.  The name was chosen to ensure that the organization was easy to find for those seeking our services and to ensure that our focus was absolutely clear for those looking for help. 

10 years supporting Albertans dealing with eating disorders.  A meaningful milestone. The thing about milestones is that they encourage us to look back at how far we have come and to look forward to where we are going. 

It is with mixed emotions that I write this note.

“I live in a rural community so the ability to join a virtual group is significant for me. The sense of community and belonging was one of the best things. I have been keeping my struggles with food very secret and have experienced a lot of shame. This group has helped shift that.”

“The information was very insightful as well as the conversations with other parents and support people about how to be there for our loved ones through this journey.”

-Caregiver Group attendee

“What I found the most beneficial about the support group was connecting with others who have similar experiences, feeling safe to be vulnerable about my own struggles helps to reduce my shame around them.”

 – Support Group participant

“Volunteering with EDSNA has not only taught me about how to help others, it’s taught me how to help myself. Recovering from an eating disorder is one of the hardest things a person can do, but you don’t have to do it alone.

Recovery is worth it and you are worth recovering for. I am so thankful for my time volunteering with EDSNA and it is one of the most rewarding roles I have ever taken on.”

-Hannah, volunteer with EDSNA for 10 years
