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.

Our strive carer support groups for eating disorders (Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, OSFED, ARFID and more) run monthly at the below times.

Breakout strive groups run monthly (ARFID), and quarterly (Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, and for Male Carers).

Origins of strive Australia

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 state-based members. Members can join this page here.

strive eating disorder support groups:

  • Provide a safe, supportive place for carers to meet each month in a semi-structured environment which allows for both knowledge sharing and peer support
  • Provide information and resources to assist parents and carers to understand eating disorders and their integral role in recovery
  • Encourage empowerment of carers in their role in the recovery of the person with the eating disorder
  • Are run by trained volunteer carers, for carers.

 

We are currently running all our strive eating disorder support groups online.
