Eating Disorder Groups
Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses, causing distress to sufferers and their families. Support groups have been running for some time in the Trinity building, but they are now a part of Trinity’s services. They operate in partnership with B-eat, the UK’s leading charity supporting anyone affected by eating disorders or difficulties with food, weight and shape.
There are two groups which run on Wednesday evenings:
Recovery Support Group – 7.30 – 9pm on the 3rd Wednesday of each month
This is a self-help group for people wanting to recover from an eating disorder. The aim of the group is to support recovery and provide a safe space run by trained facilitators with experience, understanding, empathy, mutual support and information. For more information about the group please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org, 07799 731381
Family and Friends Support Group – 7.30 – 9pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month
This is an environment where family and friends of anyone with an eating disorder can talk about their concerns, share information and explore ways of coping.
For more information about the Family and Friends support group please contact email@example.com, 07900 490609.
Both groups operate in partnership with Beat and are run by trained facilitators with experience in eating disorders. They are open groups and no referral is necessary.
*NEWS* Wednesday 19th July will be a joint meeting for the Recovery and Family & Friends groups. We will welcome two young women who have recovered from eating disorders and are coming to talk to us about their recovery journeys, and how they prevent and cope with relapse. After the talk we will split into our separate groups so there will be the opportunity to ask questions. This promises to be an inspirational evening.
