strive Eating Disorder Support Groups
Caring for a loved one with an eating disorder can be incredibly isolating. We get it, because we have ‘lived it too’. We know how overwhelming, frustrating and frightening caring for someone with an eating disorder can be.
strive Victoria, an eating disorder support group for carers was established in late 2016. strive eating disorder carer support groups are a place for compassion, peer support and mutual learning. We created strive parent and carer support groups to connect fellow eating disorder carers, and to support, teach, reassure, inform, validate and empower them…so they are more skilled to deal with these mental illnesses.
Each state has their own strive eating disorder support group community. Our newest online community is strive Australia, a national private Facebook page to connect all our statebased members. Members can join this page here
