Eating Disorder Groups
Eating disorders are serious mental illnesses, causing distress to sufferers and their families. Our support groups have been running in the Trinity Winchester building since 2011. They were originally set up in partnership with the eating disorder charity Beat, and are now a part of Trinity’s services.
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 are run by trained facilitators with experience in eating disorders. They are open groups and no referral is necessary.
