Our next session, coming soon:

Friday 23 November 2018 

13:30 – 17:00

Learn about the many different eating disorder diagnoses from people who share their stories of living with these experiences. We use film clips and interactive activities to explore causes, treatments and the physical and psychological effects of eating disorders. We will address any fears and challenges you may have when it comes to helping someone with an eating disorder. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
