Support Group for Eating Disorders

Support Group for Eating Disorders

Support Group for Eating Disorders will be run by the Facilitator - Angela Lim

Description: An eating disorder is a complex mental illness characterised by disturbed eating behaviours, distorted beliefs, and extreme concerns about food, eating and body size, shape or weight.

Eating disorders can be associated with major medical complications which can affect every organ in the body. They are not a lifestyle choice or about vanity. No one would choose to have an eating disorder.

If your life feels like it is on a downward trajectory and you are struggling to cope, perhaps a support group might help. Our group provides a safe space for carers and sufferers to share and discuss their experiences with the disorders. Self-acceptance is stressed. Attendees will receive guidance on how/where to find evidence-based information about the disorder and access relevant services. The caring and sharing of the group offers relief from isolation and loneliness.

WHEN: 2nd Monday of every month, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
