We are families helping families
Having a loved one with an eating disorder is exhausting. We get it. This is a safe place to talk and receive support. We have come together as a community group to offer each other support around the challenges of coping with this illness. It's about sharing with others who have already traveled this journey or about to embark on it as regards a loved one. The group was founded several years ago with the help of ANAD.
ANAD is the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders. They are a non-profit dedicated to the prevention and alleviation of eating disorders since 1975. They also help establish support groups throughout the country.
We are parents and spouses, brothers and sisters, girlfriends, boyfriends and friends. We all care about someone with an eating disorder. It could be your mother or father, your spouse, a son or daughter, a brother or sister, a friend or co-worker. Although this is a drop in group, it is requested that if you are a first time attendee that you contact the facilitator beforehand.
Meetings are held the third or fourth Monday of each month, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at:
The Discovery Counseling Center
115-A Town and Country Drive
Group is facilitated by Bernadette Murphy, LMFT
There is no fee to attend the support group.
Please check the website regularly for any updates, meeting changes and/or cancellations.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS SUPPORT GROUP IS FOR FAMILY AND FRIENDS ONLY, NOT FOR INDIVIDUALS SUFFERING WITH AN EATING DISORDER.**
