strive Eating Disorder Carer Support Groups
Caring for a loved one with an eating disorder can be incredibly isolating. EDFA Founders Christine Naismith and Violeta Bozinovski experienced this isolation first hand. They founded an eating disorder support group for carers in late 2016, in Flemington, Victoria, which has been meeting monthly ever since. This group is now known as strive Victoria.
strive eating disorder carer support groups are a place for compassion, peer support and mutual learning.
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.
