Support Group for Eating Disorders

Calgary Silver Linings Foundation is now offers support groups for those struggling with eating disorders.

These 8-week support groups offers individuals (18 years and above) an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of their struggles, share their experiences, challenges and successes with each other in a safe and structured environment.

These group will help participants to:

  • explore the deeper emotional motivators that keep an eating disorder in a person’s life,

  • maintain motivation and hope in the recovery process,

  • gain a better understanding of the recovery process, and

  • discuss coping skills and how to use them in a way that makes a difference.

These groups do not differentiate between the different types of eating disorders because it is not our goal to discuss particular eating disorder behaviours. The group supports the struggle that individuals go through and focuses on underlying emotional issues that are common to all eating disorders.

This support group is not therapy and is not substitute for treatment.
